Jay Nixon 46%
Sarah Steelman 35%
Jay Nixon 48%
Kenny Hulshof 30%
- Jay Nixon remains under 50% against each contender.
- Kenny Hulshof's main goal over the next 90 days will be to get his name identification up. His favorable/unfavorable rating is split because a lot of people don't know who he is.
- Steelman's 11-point disadvantage is not a bad position for her at all, considering Nixon's higher profile and the conventional wisdom that this is a bad Republican year.
- Nixon leads both Republican candidates among voters not affiliated with either major party. However, large segments of the unaffiliated voters (27% to 34%) are not yet supporting either Nixon or the Republican candidates in these match-ups.
Taking predictions now. Where will Hulshof and Steelman's numbers be in May?
