Missouri Scout conducted its first poll of the year last week…

 

Respondents: Registered voters living in Missouri, with working landline and cellular telephones, who are likely to vote in a general election.  For this survey, 500 Interviews were collected (400 landline interviews were conducted by Interactive Voice Response. 100 cellular interviews were conducted by live operators.) The margin of error is +/-4.38%.

 

 

 

Question 8: The legislature is considering a bill that would ban all lobbyist gifts to elected officials, their staffs and family members. Would you support or oppose a bill to ban all lobbyist gifts?

After a significant amount of media attention, legislation focusing on the reform of lobbying rules has been introduced this year. Specifically, there is a bill that focuses on banning lobbyist gifts to elected officials, their staffs and family members. The support for the law is overwhelming. Of the issues we polled, this was the most popular.
