The poll, conducted for current frontrunner for Senate and former Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens’ campaign, asked respondents, “If you knew a candidate pledged to vote against Mitch McConnell as Senate leader, would that make you more likely or less likely to vote for that candidate?”

Overall, 49 percent of GOP primary voters in Missouri said it would make them more likely to support that candidate. Only 16 percent said it would make them less likely — meaning there is more than three-to-one support for ditching McConnell than keeping him — and 36 percent said it would make no difference.

What’s even more profound than that overall number is the breakdown by demographic, which shows among other stunning findings that a majority of women surveyed — 51 percent — said they are more likely to back the anti-McConnell candidate. Majorities of people under 54 years old — 50 percent among 45-to-54-year-olds, 54 percent among 35-to-44-year-olds, and 53 percent among 18-to-34-year-olds — were more likely to back the anti-McConnell candidate.
