Put Bluntly, Obama’s Job Approval in Missouri Stinks


Last week I wrote, “Put bluntly, Missouri’s Senate race isn’t looking that competitive lately.”

Now Mason-Dixon unveils a poll showing Republican Roy Blunt leading Democrat Robin Carnahan, 48 percent to 42 percent.

Larry Sabato shifted the race to “leans Republican.”

Note that Mason-Dixon puts Obama’s approval rating in Missouri at 34 percent (!) and disapproval at 57 percent.
