According to a survey conducted in the Joplin media market by Remington Research Group on behalf of Missouri Scout, Audrey Richards outpaces both State Senator Mike Moon and former State Senator Jay Wasson. She came in at 6%, while both Moon and Wasson polled at 3%.
While polling at 3% overall in this first round, Audrey points out that the poll did not appear to include many respondents in her native counties of Stone or Taney.
