President Trump Responds on Truth Social to Suspect Missouri Poll “Wow, Great Dishonesty in Politics”
President Trump responded to an article on Breitbart about a fake poll in Missouri.
Breitbart reported earlier today on a poll taken in Missouri where the polling party reportedly deliberately undercounted President Trump’s support in the state:
Several Republican strategists told Breitbart News on Sunday that a Missouri poll commissioned by campaign operatives associated with Attorney General Eric Schmitt’s U.S. Senate campaign deliberately undercounts former President Donald Trump’s support in an effort to boost Schmitt in the final days of the race.
Remington Research Group, a political firm associated with Schmitt’s top consultant Jeff Roe, published a poll showing Trump leading the 2024 presidential primary field at 42 percent. The survey shows Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis at 18 percent, Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) at 6 percent, and other candidates combining for 17 percent with 17 percent undecided. It was conducted from July 27 to July 28 by surveying 818 likely voters in Missouri.
Below are the results of the poll in question.

Breitbart continued with the numbers behind the poll, claiming that President Trump is much higher in Missouri than the poll states.
While that sounds impressive for Trump—he is leading the potential 2024 field absolutely and even a fake poll cannot hide that fact—several in-the-know strategists told Breitbart News that the poll is obviously fake because it actually undercounts Trump’s support. In reality in Missouri, several GOP strategists told Breitbart News, the former president is much closer to 70 percent or higher in Missouri, and DeSantis is more likely than not in single digits.
“This is a completely fake poll commissioned by the RINO establishment who are looking to move on from President Trump,” a national Republican operative who advises candidates in both Missouri and Florida among other places told Breitbart News. “There is no way Missouri, a deep Trump state, would ever vote for someone like Ron DeSantis. President Trump is dominating the state and every other state in the country.”
“President Trump is way higher in Missouri than this poll states, and everyone knows it,” a second GOP strategist told Breitbart News. “Clearly, something funky is going on in Missouri with people trying to undermine Trump’s return to the White House. Take this with a very big grain of salt.”
Still a third strategist questions why Schmitt’s team—again Roe, whose firm Axiom Strategies launched Remington, the outfit that published this poll—would deliberately try to downplay Trump’s support.
