Just days after a Zogby poll published by the Wall Street Journal gave Senator Jim Talent a 5 point lead over Democrat Claire McCaskill, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch is out with a poll with very different results.
A Research 2000 Poll, published by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch has Claire McCaskill beating Jim Talent 49% to 43% if the election were held today. Research 2000 polled 800 voters between June 19 and June 22nd. And the party samples of voters polled looks pretty equal.
While each candidate wins more than 80% of the voters in their own party, McCaskill wins independent voters 53% to 39%.
The Dispatch has a bonanza of other polls and data on its website on a host of other state and national issues . . . More to come . . .
