MOScout Poll: Right Track/Wrong Track

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 1: In general, are things in Missouri headed in the right direction, or are things off on the wrong track?

Right Direction           51.9%

Wrong Track               44.2%

Unsure/DK/NA           3.9%


Commentary: For the first time since I’ve started doing statewide polls, a majority of Missourians (52%) say things are moving in the right direction.  The economy drives this question.  But for those imagining the next election battle, jobs may not be the most important issue comes November 2014.
