On December 21st SurveyUSA released a 600 sample poll taken in Missouri from December 9th through the 11th which shows the approval ratings for Senator Claire McCaskill (D) and Senator Kit Bond (r). The margin of error is 4.1%.

The poll was sponsored by KCTV in Kansas City.

Kit Bond is doing a little bit better. I wonder if his association with saint rudy is helping? Claire is doing much better, too.

Do you approve or disapprove of the job Claire McCaskill is doing as United States Senator?
