SurveyUSA: At Home, 48% View Hulshof Favorably

ST. PAUL -- The automated polling outfit SurveyUSA puts Kenny Hulshof's favorability rating at 48% in his 9th Congressional District, which covers mid-Missouri.

The poll was taken of 634 likely voters in Missouri's 9th District on Sept. 1 & 2. It has a 4-point margin of error.

The primary goal of survey was to poll the open Congressional seat, left vacant because of Hulshof's run for Governor. In the head-to-head match-up in the 9th, Republican Blaine Luetkemeyer is leading Democrat Judy Baker comfortably, 50%-38%. An article in Thursday's Roll Call suggest, Missouri's 9th District may be a waste for Democrats nationally.

Hulshof, who is running for Governor against Democrat Jay Nixon, holds a 48% favorability rating. Twenty-two percent view Hulshof unfavorably. Twenty-percent are neutral.

SurveyUSA polls are viewed skeptically by politicos on all sides of the spectrum because polling is done by automated phone calls, and not actual human beings.
