About the poll
SurveyUSA interviewed 1,200 Missouri adults online from Oct. 27 through Nov. 1, 2022. The sample was provided by Lucid Holdings LLC or New Orleans. The poll was exclusive for Gray Television’s Missouri stations (KMOV-TV in St. Louis, KCTV-TV in Kansas City, KYTV-TV in Springfield, KFVS-TV in Cape Girardeau, WGEM-TV in Quincy, IL; and KYOU-TV in Ottumwa, IA), and for KRCG-TV in Jefferson City and KOAM-TV in Pittsburg, KS.
Of the adults, 991 were identified as being registered to vote, of which 791 were determined to be likely to vote or to already have voted in the upcoming general election and were asked the questions. The pool of respondents was weighted to United States Census targets for gender, age, race, education, and home ownership.
Only those determined to be likely to vote or to have already cast their ballots in the general election were asked the question about if they would be more likely to vote for a Congressional candidate that claims the 2020 Presidential election was stolen from Trump.
The 991 adults who said they were registered to vote were the only ones asked questions regarding a potential 2024 rematch between Trump and Biden and about the filibuster.
The entire pool of 1,200 Missouri adults was asked about the Supreme Court decision, the potential increase in COVID-19, and student loan forgiveness.
