A pair of surveys were released yesterday, and each major party candidate was projected to be holding a slight lead. The CNN/SSRS survey (9/25-29; 756 MO likely voters) finds Sen. Claire McCaskill (D) topping Attorney General Josh Hawley (R) by three percentage points, 47-44%. But, Remington Research, polling for the Missouri Scout political blog, sees Mr. Hawley holding an equivalent small edge, 48-46%.
Interestingly, in the aforementioned CNN poll, Ms. McCaskill’s lead drops to one percentage point, 43-42%, when the universe is expanded to include registered voters (increasing the sample size to 906). This all means the Missouri Senate race is a complete dead heat as we begin the critical final drive to Election Day.
