Not saying it is junk (though I think Obama is down by 5 at the most) but both polls came out of firms that have a record of favoring Republicans and/or have worked with Republicans. I also doubt that McCaskill is down by that much if she is really losing.

Both times Nate Silver released his pollster rankngs Mason-Dixon was ranked quite high (higher than PPP and Rasmussen).

Given that Rasmussen is finding the same thing, I'd feel comfortable saying Romney's probably leading in Missouri by...oh...I'll say 9 points.

I also doubt that McCaskill is down by that much if she is really losing.

Polling from multiple pollsters suggest McCaskill really is losing. http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2012/senate/mo/missouri_senate_steelman_vs_mccaskill-1789.html#polls

if it's tied at national level, Romney + 9 in MO is quite possible.

Party ID of this poll is R+4. 2004 was only R+1, and 2008 was D+6. So yeah, Mason Dixon has a fine track record, but that party ID is a bit hard for this Republican to believe.

Plus, that would help explain Obama's miserable favorability rating in Missouri.

Obama - 34/51%
Romney 39/27%

I would've been more interested in seeing his job rating though.

Only 66% of folks have an opinion of Romney? That seems awfully low.

I bet Romney wins Missouri around 53-45. Obama will probably completely pull out of the state by Missouri sometime in the early fall. Both Obama and McCaskill are likely done here.

Not really.  They explicitly included a neutral option and for those who haven't formed an opinion on him beyond "generic Republican"  neutral sounds about right.

Well, that explains it. R+4 vs D+6.

D+6 would have MO as tossup, which sounds about right.
