On March 3rd SurveyUSA released a 600 sample poll of adults taken in Missouri from February 20th through the 22nd showing the approval numbers for Senators Claire McCaskill (D) and Kit Bond (r). The margin of error is 4% for the results on Bond and 4.1% for the results on McCaskill.

The poll was sponsored by KCTV in Kansas City.

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

40% – disapprove

6% – not sure

35% – approve

62% – disapprove

3% – not sure

Independents [27% of sample]

44% – approve

44% – disapprove

12% – not sure

Compared to January Claire McCaskill’s overall numbers haven’t changed much. There is some improvement among self-identified republicans. This month’s survey sampling has a lower percentage of Democrats and a higher percentage of republicans.

Let’s take a look at the numbers for Kit Bond:

Do you approve or disapprove of the job Kit Bond is doing as United States Senator?

All

59% – approve

33% – disapprove

8% – not sure

Democrats [33% of sample]

46% – approve

47% – disapprove

8% – not sure

republicans [33% of sample]

76% – approve

17% – disapprove

7% – not sure

Independents [27% of sample]

57% – approve

34% – disapprove

8% – not sure

There are fewer “undecideds” overall when compared to the January numbers. Other than that Bond’s overall numbers haven’t changed much. There is an increase in disapproval among Democrats and an increase in approval among Independents. Maybe it’s the pork earmarks. There’s nothing like a local news story trumpeting that your senior senator brought home the bacon yet again.
