Is Robin Carnahan Missouri's Martha Coakley?

Rasmussen Reports has Missouri's Roy Blunt leading Robin Carnahan in new poll.

"Republican Roy Blunt now holds a six-point lead over Democrat Robin Carnahan in Missouri’s race for the U.S. Senate.
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely voters in the state finds Blunt ahead of Carnahan 49% to 43%. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided... As it has for other Democrats throughout the nation, the health care issue appears to be creating challenges for Carnahan. Just 37% of Missouri voters favor the health care plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats, but 62% oppose it."

Roy Blunt commented on the new poll on Facebook: "We need to keep working hard. Only poll that matters is the one on Nov. 2!" (Find more information about volunteering for Roy on his website
