A new poll predicts Missouri election results for may come down to the wire.
According to a Monmouth University Poll, Missouri elections are so close, candidates for the U.S. senate and governor are polling within 1 percent or less of each other.
The poll places incumbent Republican Senator, Roy Blunt, holding a 1 percent lead to Democrat Jason Kander. The numbers show Blunt polling at 47 percent, Kander at 46 percent and Libertarian Jonathan Dine at 2 percent of the vote.
The race for governor is even closer: a virtual tie. The poll has Democratic Attorney General Chris Koster and Republican Navy SEAL Eric Greitens each at 4
6 percent of the vote and 2 percent for Libertarian Cisse Spragins.
The races are so close it has many voters choosing people instead of parties.
Many MU students stopped by multiple voting stations on MU campus including Memorial Union and Reynolds Alumni Center to make their voice heard in a crucial election that can reshape the country’s political climate.
Some of the students waiting in line were first-time voters for president. Industrial engineering sophomore Conner Brown said participating in the general election made him “feel like an adult.” Brown holds a negative view on this year’s candidates. “I think that the candidates this year just don’t accurately represent the American population,” he said.
