No wonder Robin was AWOL while the president was in Missouri this week. These numbers are terrible!

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely voters in the state finds Blunt leading Carnahan 47% to 41%. Four percent (4%) prefer some other candidate, and eight percent (8%) are undecided. Those figures are little changed from a month ago.

Opposition to the health care plan is higher in Missouri than it is nationally. Just 37% of voters in the state approve of the plan working its way through Congress, while 60% oppose it. These numbers include 21% who Strongly Favor it and 51% who Strongly Oppose.
