SurveyUSA Poll: Nixon Beats Blunt 57-38% 

SurveyUSA has Blunt's Approval rating way up to 48%. But it doesn't help him against Nixon in this poll.  He loses to Nixon in every part of the state and is down 19 points overall.

Poll on Jetton's Website 

Shows 75% against his social security tax cut.  Of course web polls are totally unscientific. True number is probably closer to 70...

UPDATE: Poll's been pulled.

March 31, 2007 


For those taking note of the presidential polls already, just a quick reminder that only the broadest impressions can be taken from them at this point.

A Time Magazine poll released Friday has Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) defeating Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) 48% to 42%.

A Rasmussen poll released Thursday has former North Carolina Senator John Edwards (D) defeating McCain 47% to 38%.

Finally, Edwards is shown in the Time poll as trailing Clinton (38%) and Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) (30%) in the polls with 26% in a three-way primary. Edwards has been stuck in the third slot for some time, but has been moved up the ladder some following his wife's medical announcement.

It's true these are, of course, different firms with different sample groups, methods, etc.

The day-to-day can be fun to follow, and it is good data for establishing trends in the long run, but outside of rough estimates of who's ahead and who's behind it's too noisy to make much in the way of a prediction.

Even the aggregate doesn't clear things up that much. It would seem the GOP front-runners, former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani and McCain, are leading the Democratic front runners Clinton and Obama. That said, a few match-ups have them running even or show a Democratic lead.

Public Opinion on Takeover 

Back in December this Terry Jones poll had 60% supporting takeover. Wonder if the number has changed much lately.

Reed's Polling 

From email tipster:

I just completed a phone survey on the aldermanic board president race. EMH Opinion Sampling was the polling firm. Based in Sacramento CA.

Asked opinions of Firefighters Local #73, Reed, Shrewsbury, Bosley Jr. and McMillan.

Pro Reed statements included over $1 billion in development, establishing integrated IT system for city, starting Bike St. Louis. Cons were his connections to developers and support of TIFs, and never having held citywide office. Also a really odd con statement that his phone number is listed under his wife's name.

Pro Shrewsbury statements included starting meetings on time, outlawing firearms on city property, and making it illegal to leave children alone in cars. Con statements were having an office in the county, working only part time as president of the board, and allowing an alderman to urinate in chambers.

I think the survey was for Reed because of a couple of statements indicating Shrewsbury did/didn't do something for (unnamed) political reasons, e.g. support budget increases for firemen. No references were made to Reed's political motivations.

Shrewsbury Poll 

Spoke with a couple of people about a Shrewsbury poll last week.

Here's the best recollection of those people:

Favorable/Unfavorable on -

Questions about Reed (do you view the following favorably?)

1. Has no listed telephone number.
2. In favor of BJC-Forest Park Deal.
3. Is African American.
4. Would be the 1st African American BOA pres.
5. Close to the mayor.
6. Mayor appointed Reed's wife to be a judge.
7. Is a developer
8. Gives away tax money for development.
9. Has no city-wide experience.
10. Is endorsed by Lacy Clay
11. Favors giving away tax money for Ball Park Village.

Questions about Shrewsbury (do you view the following favorably?)
1. Sponsored/passed legislation to keep drugs and prostitution away from schools.
2. Sponsored/passed legislation for the Citizen Review Board.

More questions about Shrewsbury
1. Do you think he's been at the BOA too long.
2. Do you think he handled the Smith urination issue appropriately?
3. Do you think he's an independent voice willing to go against the mayor?

Also, Would Darlene Green's endorsement be favorable?

Before and after the poll respondents were asked "If the election were held today, who would you vote for?"

Burns looks good in 85th 

DATE: September 12, 2006
TO: Bob Burns for State Representative Campaign
FROM: Terry Jones
RE: Poll Results

Republican incumbent Jim Lembke is very vulnerable to Democratic challenger Bob Burns’s in the upcoming November election for state representative in Missouri ’s 85th House District, according to my poll of 302 likely voters conducted September 7 through 9.

Only 33% say they will definitely vote for Lembke, 18 points shy of the majority he would need to win. An almost equal share, 29%, reply they will definitely vote to replace him. Only 36% give Lembke either an excellent or good job performance rating while 46% assign him either an only fair or poor score.

A plurality, 47%, say Missouri is headed in the wrong direction, a group predisposed to vote against any incumbent. Only 32% see the state going in the right direction with the remainder indicating the picture is mixed.

Lembke’s favorable/unfavorable ratio is just 1.68 (42% favorable/25% unfavorable) while Burns’s is much better at 3.75 (30% favorable/8% unfavorable).

Low re-elect numbers, weak job performance ratings, deep concern about the state’s direction, mediocre favorables/unfavorables: there are all the ingredients for an incumbent defeat.

Blunt by the numbers 

The most recent poll from Survey USA has Governor Blunt's August approval rating up 2 points from 38% in July. After a year-long stint in the mid-30's, the Governor has drifted up and begun to hover around 40% in the recent polls.

It may not appear to be a significant shift, but the details are interesting. Blunt picked up support among groups who have expressed some reservations with him lately, Pro-Life voters (50 to 57%), and regular church-goers (45 to 49%).

Regionally he picked up support in central Missouri (39 to 46%), and even Kansas City (35 to 40%); though he lost some in the Ozarks (51 to 46%).

That said, all these polls have a fairly wide margin of error, 5%, 6%, even 9% for regional numbers. Yet the jump in favorability among a few key groups in August stands out.

The August survey was taken between the 11th and the 13th, not long after Blunt began running television and radio spots. It was before he publicly reiterated his support for stem cells, however. The August primary could be a factor, rising tide and all that. Blunt also chose a new chief of staff and stood firm on the voter ID bill around this time.

I am sure those wiser than I will jump in.

Poll: Akin to Trounce Parker 

Over at Combest, he has a poll that gives Akin a 77-3 lead.

The response from Parker's camp: Poll fails to mention Parker; Asks leading questions

St. Peters, Missouri - June 30, 2006 The Akin campaign released a poll today - that most experts would agree - uses suspect sampling methodology and asks leading questions, accounting for its unusually high 5.8% margin of error. For example, according to Akin's "poll":

" 85% are more likely to vote for Congressman Akin for his sponsorship of legislation to keep “Under God” in the pledge of allegiance, including 70% who are much more likely."

"82% are more likely to vote for Congressman Akin when told he introduced legislation to protect property owners from the misuse of eminent domain, including 62% who are much more likely."

" 69% are more likely to vote for Congressman Akin for his vote to build a fence across our border with Mexico, to send illegal aliens back to their country or origin and his vote against amnesty for illegal aliens, including 49% who are much more likely."

"This poll they've released is a joke," said Sherman Parker, "My extended family alone should put me over 3%! Most Americans support keeping "under God in the Pledge", reforming eminent domain laws, and halting illegal immigration into our country. It's a far stretch for the Akin campaign to equate strong support for these issues to strong support for Akin in general."

The Akin poll also claims 96% of second district Republican primary voters know who he is, with 75% approving of his job performance.

"Todd Akin votes over 90% of the time with President Bush, whose favorable ratings have declined significantly among Republican voters in Missouri. It's hard to believe Congressman Akin is polling that much higher than the President and Senator Talent."

Rep. Parker has been requesting for over 90 days now, the opportunity to debate Congressman Akin on the issues that are important to the second district and to our country. As of this date, still no response from Mr. Akin.
