Big surprise.

On April 25th SurveyUSA released a 600 sample poll taken in Missouri from April 11th through the 13th which shows that Matt “baby” Blunt continues his slide beyond lame duckdom. The margin of error is 4.1%.

The poll was sponsored by KCTV in Kansas City.

It’s probably a good idea (for republicans) that he decided to not run for re-election.

Do you approve or disapprove of the job Matt Blunt is doing as Governor?

All

42% – approve

56% – disapprove

3% – not sure

Democrats [39% of sample]

23% – approve

76% – disapprove

1% – not sure

republicans [24% of sample]

70% – approve

27% – disapprove

3% – not sure

Independents [29% of sample]

44% – approve

53% – disapprove

3% – not sure

Ah yes. Fewer undecideds.  Nothing fails like failure.

It continues to be the economy….

Overall Matt “baby” Blunt’s disapproval numbers have increased by six points since last month. Gas prices moving their way to $4.00 a gallon will coat almost anybody’s rose colored glasses with sludge.

The good news for the governor is that his numbers are 12 points better than dubya’s in Missouri.

Social Security [4% of sample]

Okay, that massive shift in the “education” numbers to the positive has to be because of the miniscule subsample. The “frequency” (actual number of responses in the category – 13 individuals approve of “baby” Blunt, 10 disapprove and 1 is undecided). Does that put it in some perspective?

The republican “fear” base (terrorism and immigration) continues its faithful support of all things republican.  Matt “baby” Blunt has net disapproval among those who consider either the economy, health care, Iraq, Social Security, or the environment as the most pressing issue for the next president.
