Good, but I'm not optimistic about this race. Anyway, Trump is up 12 and Greitens is up 1.

Really hope Blunt and Greitens can pull this out.

You are aware that Greitens is far to the right of even Missouri right? He would be a disaster for the state's economy.

I don't think Greitens is that far right. Brunner was the Tea Party guy, Greitens strikes me as just "generic R" rather than far right.

Isn't this a Republican push poll? I still think Kander is up by a little, though it will be incredibly close.

Well... you already answered this. ;)

Yes Remington is Republican, just like PPP is Democratic, but that does not mean there are methodological problems with their research. If any of you can point out Remington did anything wrong in conducting this poll I'll be the first to say you're right, but this does not seem like a particularly strange result at all. If this was Blunt +6, that would be fishy, but Blunt +3 4 is perfectly believable.

Hahahahaha, touché. However, this isn't the first time, and Remington is the only pollster showing Blunt up, right? It can happen once, but if it happens twice... I just don't know. I'd like to believe it, but I'm skeptical about this race.

Remington does not have the record of PPP so it's pretty asinine to compare them.
