The top of the page, very bold headline in the very Pro-Carnahan St. Louis Post-Dispatch read: "POLL SHOWS BLUNT IN LEAD." (Link to story here - if the website is actually working.)
Now, of course, those of us paying attention have been reading that writing on the wall for some time now but it is great to see the liberal local newspaper confirming that Roy Blunt is up six points in the race for the United States Senate.
The Post is also reporting that in the same poll 57% of Missourians disapprove of Barack Obama's performance as president. That bodes well for Blunt (and Missouri). Only 37% approve of Obama's job performance.
Here's a not-so-subtle message to the 9% of Missouri voters who disapprove of Barack Obama's job performance but, apparently, aren't lined up behind Roy Blunt quite yet . . . Robin Carnahan would be vote in the back pocket of Barack Obama for remaining length of his presidency.
It is time to lend your support. Put on that Blunt bumper sticker. Donate if you can. Tell all your friends and get out to vote. The GOP needs the seat. And Missouri needs Roy Blunt.
