A Missouri Scout poll released over the weekend found that Republican Josh Hawley continues to lead his Democrat challenger Claire McCaskill in the closely watched Missouri U.S. Senate race.
47 percent of likely Missouri voters said they would support Hawley in the Nov. 6 election, while only 46 percent said they would support his Democrat challenger McCaskill.
Almost all other polls released throughout the past few months have either shown a tie between Hawley and McCaskill or placed Hawley in the lead.
A poll released October 10 by Reuters/Ipsos/UVA Center for Politics revealed that 45 percent of likely Missouri voters supported State Attorney General Hawley, while only 44 percent supported McCaskill.
On Sunday, the New York Times released a piece on Hawley detailing problems that have occurred under his watch as Missouri’s attorney general.
