Missouri Senate 2010 Election: Roy Blunt (R) 49%, Robin Carnahan (D) 43%
The Missouri Senate race represents yet another political race that is turning toward the Republican in the wake of the recent Massachusetts Scott Brown victory. The pendulum is swinging Republican in a big way.
In the most recent Rasmussen poll, Republican Roy Blount now leads Democrat Incumbent Robin Carnahan, 49% to 43%. Just last month Carnahan held a two point lead at 46% to 44%. An 8% point shift in just one month. Can you say thank you Barack Obama and Obamacare.
Republican Roy Blunt now holds a six-point lead over Democrat Robin Carnahan in Missouri’s race for the U.S. Senate.
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely voters in the state finds Blunt ahead of Carnahan 49% to 43%. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided.
Could Missouri be the next Senate seat to fall for Democrats as it appears Independents are breaking for the Republican Blount.
Once again we see another state, the “Show Me” state, in direct opposition to Obamacare tanking for the Democrat Senator. Only 37% of Missouri voters favor the health care plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats, while 62% oppose it. That is very close, actually even worse, than the national average of support of Obamacare where 56% oppose while only 38% are in favor.
Where Obamacare crashes and burns and is never passed or is rammed through Congress in some sneaky and politically suicidal manner by Democrats, the point is moot. Democrats are going to have an impossible situation trying to separate themselves from Obamacare come the November midterm elections. They were for it every inch of the way and refused to listen to the will of the people.
The only thing that caused them to pause and get their attention was the “Shot heard Around the World in Massachusetts when Scot Brown did the impossible and won as a Republican in the Bay State and took Ted Kennedy’s former US Senate seat. It was the continuation of the political revolution of “We the People” as Scott Brown won “The People’s Seat.”
