ST. LOUIS – A new poll of Missourians shows Gov. Mike Parson and Auditor Nicole Galloway are in a statistical dead heat in the race to be the next governor.

The results are part of a SLU/YouGov Poll that asked 900 likely Missouri voters their opinions on the presidential race, Missouri’s gubernatorial race, and leader’s handling of COVID-19.

The poll, conducted between June 23-July 1, shows Gov. Parson with a 2% lead over his democratic challenger, Nicole Galloway. There is a +/- 3.95% margin of error, making the race a statistical dead heat.

When it comes to the presidential race, President Donald Trump had 50% of the vote compared to 43% for Biden.
