Missouri Secretary of State Robin Carnahan (D) at the Governor’s Ham Breakfast at the Missouri State Fair in Sedalia, August 14, 2008.

Public Policy Polling [pdf] released a poll with a sample of 867 Missouri voters taken on January 10th and 11th. The margin of error is 3.3%.

…Carnahan leads Congressman Roy Blunt 45-44, former Senator Jim Talent 47-43, and

former state Treasurer Sarah Steelman 47-36…

It’s a good start.

I’m certain we’ll soon start to see the campaign mechanisms gearing up. Think of all that money flowing into Missouri. The FEC campaign finance reports might get very interesting what with all those republicans cogitating on the prospect of running.
