Public Policy Polling: “Our Polling Finds [Sen. Bond] Somewhat Vulnerable If The Right Person Runs Against Him in 2010”

Geez, we just had an election! What impact will President Obama have on the 2010 race when he travels to Missouri to campaign for Robin Carnahan, an early supporter of his?

From Public Policy Polling:

Kit Bond is more popular than Voinovich and Martinez but our polling finds him somewhat vulnerable as well if the right person runs against him in 2010.

In July we found Bond’s approval rating at 39%. In August we found it at 44%.

In hypothetical matchups we found Bond leading Secretary of State Robin Carnahan 44-42, Auditor Susan Montee 47-35, Congressman Russ Carnahan 46-43, and former Congressman Dick Gephardt 44-43.

As is often the case in Missouri politics the Democrats’ best bet may be nominating a Carnahan, and with the newly reelected Secretary of State’s term running through 2012 she would have nothing to lose by making a Senate run in 2010. Read more…
