A new Survey USA poll has Barack Obama up 51%-43% in Missouri. Support in St Louis County has solidified where Obama now leads by 22%. St Louis City and County and the KC Metro area can carry the state for Obama if the margins are big enough. Predicted turnout for St Louis County is 80%.

Obama is winning in just about all segments:

SurveyUSA says three weeks ago, McCain held a 2-percentage point lead in the Show-Me State.

  McCain is also losing ground to Obama in a number of voting segments, including men (49-44), women (53-42), whites (47-47) and both higher- and lower-income residents. Obama leads among AA voters by 84-11.

  In St. Louis, Obama's pushed his lead from 5% three weeks ago to 22% in the latest survey, which has a 4.3% margin of error.

I just heard this on KMOX while driving home - it's not up on SUSA's website yet. I'll update with internals when they're posted.

In Missouri, John McCain's Lead Among White Voters Has Evaporated: In an election for President of the United States in battleground Missouri today, 10/13/08, three weeks until votes are counted, Democrat Barack Obama has momentum and a meaningful advantage in SurveyUSA's latest tracking poll, conducted for KMOX radio in St Louis and KCTV-TV in Kansas City. The contest in Missouri has swung 10-points to Obama since SurveyUSA's last track point, 3 weeks ago. Then, McCain led by 2. Today, Obama leads, 51% to 43%. Among white voters, McCain had led by 11. Today, tied. There is movement among men, where McCain had led, now trails; among women, where McCain had been tied, now trails; among higher-income voters, where McCain had led, now trails; and among Independents, where McCain had led, now trails. In greater St. Louis, Obama had led by 5, now by 22. In greater Kansas City, Obama had led by 16, now by 31. George W. Bush carried Missouri by 7 points in 2004, and by 3.5 points in 2000. The state has 11 electoral votes, which are critical to any Republican who seeks the White House.

Survey USA also polled for the Governor's race and the numbers continue to be great for Jay Nixon - he's up over Kenny Hulshof, 56-34.

In other battleground news, Marist has Obama up in both Ohio and Pennsylvania:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
