Is Claire in trouble??
A new poll released Friday found more than half of Missouri voters (53 percent) believe the economy is better than it was a year ago.
The poll also found that a clear majority, 58 percent, of Missouri voters approve of the GOP tax law.
Both results are bad news for Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO). Missouri voters have watched the economy advance under Republican leadership, and it’s clear McCaskill, in the minority party and fighting the Republican agenda, has not done much about it.
To that end, McCaskill also voted against the GOP tax bill, which is putting more money in Missouri taxpayers’ pockets and, according to this new poll, is broadly popular with Missourians.
It’s one more sign this has been a bad week for McCaskill, who’s down eight points to Attorney General Josh Hawley (R-MO) in her reelection campaign.
