Where the race between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney may be too close to call on the national scene, there seems to be little uncertainty in any of the big races in Missouri.

The findings of a poll conducted for television stations in St. Louis, Kansas City and Springfield found Senator Claire McCaskill with a 15-point advantage over Todd Akin, and Governor Jay Nixon with a 9-point lead over Republican challenger Dave Spence. The Survey USA poll also shows Romney with a 7-point lead over Obama in Missouri.

The poll surveyed 589 likely voters between October 28th and November 3rd.
