In my neighboring state and my birth state of Missouri, Rasmussen Reports has good news today for Missouri Republicans. Congressman Roy Blunt is leading Secretary of State Robin Carnahan 50%-43%. Note that Blunt is leading by a large 20 point margin among independent voters:
“The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Missouri Voters shows Blunt with 50% support, while Carnahan earns 43% of the vote.
Two weeks ago, Blunt posted a 49% to 43% lead over Carnahan, Missouri’s current secretary of state. Blunt has run slightly ahead of Carnahan in surveys all year, with support ranging from 45% to 50%. She, in turn, has picked up 41% to 45% of the vote in those same surveys. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate in the race, and four percent (4%) are undecided.”
Before today, the Real Clear Politics average showed Roy Blunt with a 5.3% lead over Robin Carnahan. That was without the addition of today’s Rasmussen poll that shows Blunt with a seven point lead.
