Romney Leads By 7% in MO, GOP Leads McCaskill
Once again, Public Policy Polling and Scott Rasmussen are living in two different worlds. One week after PPP claimed Barack Obama was ahead in Missouri, Rasmussen comes out with a new poll showing Mitt Romney in the lead by 7%.
PRESIDENT – MISSOURI (Rasmussen)
Mitt Romney (R) 49%
Barack Obama (D-inc) 42%
Two polls taken one week apart among supposedly the same exact population showing an eight percentage-point difference. Also in Missouri, Rasmussen is showing the Republican candidates with decent-sized leads over Democrat Claire McCaskill.

Claire McCaskill (D-inc) 39%
John Brunner (R) 51%
Claire McCaskill (D-inc) 41%

Claire McCaskill (D-inc) 42%
This poll was done June 7th among 500 likely voters.
