MOScout HRC-Trump Poll

While I get the Hillary Clinton haters/fatigue/disapproval (I really do), I continue to be amazed that Donald Trump is considered a viable alternative.  And last week’s MOScout poll shows it again with Trump leading Clinton in Missouri.


My only explanation is that Trump is tapping into an extremely high voter discontent.  That discontent was also shown in the poll with twice as many Missourians saying that the state is on the wrong track as opposed to the right track (23% to 47%).   And this is with Missouri’s unemployment rate at 4.3%!!  Below the nation’s 5.0% rate.


The poll also shows that the legislature’s approval ratings are at 20% and Senator Roy Blunt’s is at 34%.
