New Election Forecast Shows Former MO Governor Eric Greitens with 96% Chance of Winning Missouri Senate Seat Over Democrat

A new forecast by Decision Desk Headquarters predicts former Missouri Governor Eric Grietens with a 96% chance of winning the US Senate seat over his closest Democrat rival.

The report is a blow to Never-Trump whose talking point is that Greitens is not a solid candidate to put up against Democrats in the November election.

President Trump won Missouri by 15 points in 2020

Donald Trump Jr.’s fiance Kimberly Guilfoyle retweeted the report. reported:

A midterm election forecast predicts former Gov. Eric Greitens (R-MO) will win Missouri’s U.S. Senate race in a blow-out, with his odds of victory sitting at 96.1 percent against a Democrat opponent in the general election.

A central talking point among establishment conservatives against the America First candidate is that Greitens would have trouble overcoming a Democrat in the general election, but Decision Desk’s model, which ran through 14,000,605 midterm election simulations, has Greitens winning 96 out of 100 races, dismantling the establishment’s talking points.

As evidenced in Dan Cox’s Maryland’s GOP gubernatorial primary win Tuesday, a battle for the heart and soul of the Republican Party is front and center this mid-term election cycle as America First candidates are rising up against the establishment. It is no different in Missouri, where the political insiders have levied an all-out assault on Greitens’ campaign, unsuccessfully, in an effort to prevent him from becoming the nominee.

The contest was largely viewed as a three-way race between Greitens, MO Attorney General Eric Schmitt, and Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R-MO), but in a Truth Social post earlier this month, Trump told voters in the Show Me State that they “can forget about Vicky Hartzler for Senate” adding that he “will NOT BE ENDORSING HER FOR THE SENATE!”

Trump’s rejection of Hartzler was a brutal blow to her campaign in a state where Trump won handily in 2020 and seemingly set up a fight to the finish between Greitens and Schmitt with Trump’s endorsement still on the line.

Last week Breitbart News exposed Schmitt’s ties to radical former state legislator Maria Chappelle-Nadal, who called for Trump’s assassination in 2017. Chappelle-Nadal posted a picture of herself and Schmitt to Twitter with the caption “7 years ago today. We are still moving mountains,” just months before the attorney general held a private fundraiser at Trump’s luxurious Mar-a-Lago estate in March.
