McCain still leads both Clinton and Obama in Missouri

May 11, 2008

McCain leading Obama by over 6% in the Show-me state

My latest projections for Missouri are:

John McCain 45.12
Hillary Clinton 42.99

John McCain 47.14
Barack Obama 40.98

This is bad news for both Clinton and Obama, the latter especially. If the heavy favourite for the Democratic nomination trails McCain by over 6% in the ultimate bellweather state after being all but crowned the nominee by the media, how can he hope to win the election? Of course, you can point out that Bush carried Missouri by a similar margin in 2004, but historically Missouri evenly matches the Democratic/Republican vote margin, without being biased to one party or another.
