Remington Research Group previously conducted a public survey on behalf of the Missouri Scout on March 24th. At that time, 62% of likely voters indicated they supported authorizing the G.O. Bonds with just 23% opposed.

“This survey shows how quickly the electorate shifts in the final week of a campaign,” said Titus Bond, Director of Remington Research Group. “Just nine days ago it appeared the G.O. Bonds were in a good position to pass. Support has now softened, especially on Question No. 3, and it appears that the prospect of all three questions passing is slim.”
