The July 2021 SLU/YouGov Poll interviewed 950 likely Missouri voters about issues important to Missourians. The survey found that voters’ approval of Gov. Mike Parson and U.S. Sen. Josh Hawley increased. Sixty-two percent of voters support the state funding Medicaid expansion, and a majority of Missouri voters do not believe schools should teach “Critical Race Theory.” A third of voters report they will not get a COVID-19 vaccine or are not sure if they will get a vaccine.

In 2020 Missouri voters voted to approve expanding Medicaid to thousands more low-income Missouri adults, but the State of Missouri has refused to fund the program. How strongly do you feel about Missouri funding Medicaid expansion?
Recently, Governor Mike Parson signed into law a bill that invalidates federal gun control laws. The new law also prohibits Missouri’s state and local officials from enforcing federal gun control laws, imposing $50,000 fines for state and local officials who knowingly enforce federal gun control laws instead of this new state law. How do you feel about this Missouri state law?
