Poll: Eric Greitens Holds a Nearly 40 Point Lead After Announcing His Senate Run in Missouri
America First U.S. Senate candidate Eric Greitens of Missouri has opened up a massive advantage of nearly 40 points against his likely competitors, according to a survey conducted by pro-Trump pollsters Tony Fabrizio, David Lee and Travis Tunis.
The poll shows Greitens receiving 48 percent support from the voters while his only declared opponent, Attorney General Eric Schmitt, received a mere 11 percent of support. Other likely candidates, such as Reps. Ann Wagner and Jason Smith, failed to receive even ten percent of support from the voters.
“This is not a case of winning simply based on higher name ID,” Fabrizio wrote about the findings of the poll. “Greitens is truly the preferred choice on an even playing field.”
The poll shows that Greitens has 55 percent support from Missouri voters who have a favorable opinion of Trump. Trump has not backed anyone in this race yet but could serve as kingmaker if he decides to get involved.
“He has the ability to be a force in this campaign if he so chooses,” Fabrizio said.
Before Republicans were fully aware of the Democrats’ #metoo phony accusation blueprint, Greitens’ run as a governor was cut short. Greitens was targeted by infamous St. Louis District Attorney Kim Gardner to prevent him from serving his full term, and establishment Republicans looked the other way as the railroading took place.
Big League Politics reported when Greitens was forced to resign as governor in 2018 amidst a series of promulgated scandals and dubious charges:
“During an evening press conference at the Missouri State Capital, Governor Eric Greitens announced that he is stepping down from his position effective Friday, June 1st at 5PM CST.
The up-and-coming political star came into the spotlight after first being elected the country’s second youngest governor at age 43 against a sea of more well-known opponents. But that fame quickly turned to infamy when he was indicted on charges of felony invasion of privacy earlier this year. The charges stemmed from an extra-marital affair where he allegedly took revealing pictures of the women he was having an affair with as blackmail...
As these more extreme allegations were hitting him, Greitens was also facing allegations of illegal coordination between the then-candidate Greitens, a non-profit he runs, and a political action committee supporting him. There are strict laws against coordination between political action committees and candidates, and if Greitens was found to have violated those laws, it would be grounds for impeachment.
Earlier in the day, before his announcement, a judge ordered Greitens to turn over documents related to his non-profit to be used in a case to impeach him.
Between these two attacks against Greitens, whether legitimate or not, it isn’t surprising that he would chose today to resign from his position as Governor.“
Missouri voters have the opportunity to elect a U.S. Senator who fully understands the dirty tricks of the political establishment and will work to root them out in Greitens.
