Missouri seems alot tighter. We've had an average lead of about 5 in September so a 3 point lead for Romney in this poll is the tightest since the conventions.

WeAskAmerica last polled both states in July. Romney had a 9 point lead in Missouri and Obama a 6 point lead in Nevada.

These recent Nevada polls have got to be a bit disconcerting to Romney. Appears it could be slipping away, as did for McCain around this same time in October 2008.

The state polls make this look like 2008. The national polls make this look like 2004.

...What is it... 95% of the population of Nevada lives in either Clark County, Washoe County, or Carson City? Nevada may look like nothing but sagebrush and mountains unless one is in one of three urban areas. The state is thus a dream for the Obama-style campaign. The state is probably full of campaign staff from California who have lived long enough in Nevada to vote there.

This poll has moved MO into a tossup on the RCP map. NV is at Obama +5.2 but hasnt been moved to lean Obama

Nevada is not a swing state at this point.  Remember, Democrats underpoll here nearly every time, and not usually by a small amount. 

Romney would need a massive shift to bring Nevada back into the fold, at which point it would be one of just a few states deciding the election.

It's WAA, so these polls are practically useless.  They've been all over the place with their polls.  Sometimes as with these two, they've given results that seem unusually favorable to the Dems.  Other times its been the Reps who've gotten the lucky nod.
