2022 US Senate Missouri Election  

12 members have voted

  1. 1. Will Eric Greitens scandals and resignation as governor cost him the GOP primary bid to be the GOP nominee to replace Senator Blunt?

  2. 2. If Eric Greitens is the GOP nominee, do you think his scandals and resignation will cost him the election vs. a Democrat?

  3. 3. If Greitens wins, what do you think is more likely to have been the reason?

    • In a hyperpartisan age, Missouri is just too red of a state. Basically, any GOP nominee will win in MO 9 times out of 10.
    • Trump's own scandals, along with his double impeachments have sort of normalized unethical behavior and threats of impeachment. Therefore, the scandals aren't really aren't that scandalous.
  4. 4. Who is the best Missouri Senator of all time?

    • Thomas Hart Benton (D), 1821-1851
      0
    • David Rice Atchison (D), 1843-1855

Eric Greitens announces he's running for the US Senate, despite having resigned in the face of an impending impeachment trial because of ethics and privacy violations, and possibly also because of an affair he was having.

Oh yes poll time!

I think Greitens's entry is a problem. The RNC should be committed to work against a primary win of him.

They are once again floating former NASCAR driver Carl Edwards around as someone who may run for this seat. He rejected it in the past and seems to enjoy his retirement life but anything is possible. Austin Petersen may also run under the republican banner again.
