I’ve been scouring the Internets for a while looking for public releases of new presidential primary polls for Missouri. There had been some old (relatively) stuff floating around – from November 2007.

Rasmussen just released the results of a “telephone survey of 798 Likely Democratic Primary Voters…conducted by Rasmussen Reports on January 24, 2008. The margin of sampling error for the survey is +/- 4 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.”

Rasmussen – Missouri Democratic Presidential primary – February 5

Clinton – 43%

Obama – 24%

Edwards – 18%

…In Missouri, 89% of Democratic Primary Voters consider the economy to be a Very Important issue. Eighty-five percent (85%) say the same about Health Care while 71% see Government Ethics and Corruption as that high a priority. Sixty-one percent (61%) see the War in Iraq as that important….

This is strikingly similar to the SurveyUSA issues results we’ve been seeing for Missouri.
