Missouri US Senate: Blunt (R) 47%, Carnahan (D) 45%

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the Show Me State finds Blunt with 47% support and Carnahan earning 45% of the vote. Two percent (2%) prefer some other candidate, and six percent (6%) remain undecided. The race has remained fairly steady for m months. Blunt’s support since September has remained in the range of 44% to 50%, while Carnahan’s in the same period has run from 41% to 46%. The Democrat, now serving as Missouri’s secretary of state, has never led in the race.

Missouri is rated one of nine Toss-Up states in the Rasmussen Reports Senate Balance of Power rankings.
Two weeks ago, Blunt, currently a congressman, led 48% to 43%.
Missouri voters continue to be more critical of the new national health care bill than voters nationally and also don’t think too highly of the Justice Department’s decision to challenge Arizona’s immigration law in court. Voters in the state have a pessimistic view of the economy and are critical of the $787-billion economic stimulus plan passed last year by Congress.
Fifty-four percent (54%) of voters in the state now rate the U.S. economy as poor. Just nine percent (9%) say it’s good or excellent.
