Americans for Prosperity- Missourians overwhelmingly favor right to work
According to recent statewide polling data, Missourians are overwhelmingly in favor of standing up against Governor Jay Nixon’s executive overreach by overriding his veto of job-creating Right to Work legislation.
By a 47-39 margin, Missourians are more likely to re-elect a legislator who votes to override Governor Nixon’s job-killing veto on September 16th.
The poll also found that 58 percent of Missourians believe the state is heading in the wrong direction, which isn’t surprising since the Show Me State is ranked a dismal 47th in economic outlook.

In addition, just 16 and 32 percent of Missourian’s have a favorable view of two special interest organizations—the SEIU and AFL-CIO—who are embracing the failing status quo by rejecting this simple job-creating legislation.
“The people of Missouri are sending a clear message to legislators in Jefferson City,” said AFP-Missouri State Director Patrick Werner. “A vote to override Governor Nixon's veto of Right to Work legislation is a vote for jobs, a vote for economic growth, and a vote for hard-working Missouri families who are counting on their elected officials to do the right thing for the future of the Show Me State.”
The poll, which was conducted by Wilson Perkins Allen Opinion Research, surveyed 502 registered Missouri voters between August 25 and 27, 2015 and has a margin of error of plus/minus 4.4 percent.
