The good news is that the undecideds aren't all Republicans; they break relatively evenly between the parties.

Also, part of McCaskill's slippage is that her numbers have dropped with Democrats; she's getting getting 78-82% among them now, compared to 87-90% in the last poll. Obama should help with that and those Democrats will vote for her in the end anyway.

NV, MA, and MO all female candidates running in toss-up races and only one of them may very well win their race. MA will have the strong coattails of Obama whereas the other two may not so much.

I think Brunner's the best GOP bet simply because the other 2 can't fundraise to save their lives. Initially I preferred Steelman, but then I saw her fundraising reports...

That said, McCaskill is probably going down as Missouri transitions from purple to red.

+7.35, +3.65



Is it excessive to hold a politician's feet to the fire for giving his base the run around at every turn?

Approvals below Obama and doing worse than Obama in head to head match-ups.

That's the curse of moderate heroism for you. While it will suck to lose a Senate seat, I won't shed any tears for her.

Isn't McCaskill, more or less, a party line vote? She always had something against earmarks, I believe, but what makes her unvaluable for Democrats in the Senate?

Not at all. Her voting record is to the right of garbage like Lieberman and Conrad. Missouri isn't that far to the right of Ohio, which has a pretty good Senator.

This begs to differ about her record, she qualifies as a Liberal Populist http://www.issues2000.org/senate/Claire_McCaskill.htm

She's pro-choice, voted to repeal DADT and is otherwise a party line vote.

Not good for McCaskill especially since Steelman has had some sh*ty fundraising reports. Imagine how much more trouble she will be in once SuperPacs start throwing money into the state.
