A new private poll from the Greitens campaign found that 62% of Missouri voters who supported President Donald Trump in 2020 now support former Governor Greitens for US Senate.
The poll comes out as President Trump still has not weighed in on the race except to state he will not be supporting candidate and Representative Vicky Hartzler.
The vast majority of Missouri Republican primary voters who supported former President Donald Trump in 2016 or 2020 say they are voting for former Gov. Eric Greitens (R-MO) in Missouri’s Republican primary for U.S. Senate, according to a private survey from the Greitens campaign shared exclusively with Breitbart News.
The survey reached out to a staggering 115,983 voters, and live voters comprised 21 percent of that number, yielding an enormous sample size. Of live voters, 62 percent said they are casting their ballots for Greitens in the primary, while only eight percent said they are not voting for the former governor. Another 18 percent said they would be voting for another candidate, and those who were “undecided” made up eight percent of participants. Four percent said they were voting in the primary but refused to say for whom.
The poll sheds significant light on where GOP voters stand with the August 2 primary just over a week away. Greitens taking the lion’s share of Trump Republicans in a crowded primary field indicates potential problems for other candidates on election day, including Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt and Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R-MO), who have both consistently polled behind Greitens and remain behind him in the Real Clear Politics polling average. The pair, along with other candidates, including Rep Billy Long (R-MO), only garnered the support of 18 percent of the Trump Republicans in Missouri, collectively, with just another 12 percent up for grabs. In other words, Greitens is taking in Trump Republicans at a clip of more than three to one versus the rest of the field.
