Robin Carnahan Roy BluntSeven-term Republican Rep. Roy Blunt has slightly increased his lead over Democrat Robin Carnahan, Missouri's Secretary of State in their race to win the seat of GOP Sen. Kit Bond who is retiring, according to a Rasmussen Reports poll conducted May 3.

Blunt has now reached the 50 percent mark while Carnahan's support is at 42 percent, with 4 percent preferring another candidate and 4 percent undecided. The margin of error is 4.5 points. In early March, Blunt led 47 percent to 41 percent.

Both get almost 90 percent support from members of their own parties, but Blunt leads among unaffiliated voters by 56 percent to 28 percent with the rest undecided or preferring someone else.

Our New Approach to Comments

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info.

My vote goes to Roy Blunt. A good man who votes the will of the people. This Carnahan dynasty thing has got to end. They do nothing for the state of Missouri and everything for themselves. Never could stand them.
