Posted March 26, 2008 at 11:35am

John McCain enjoys double-digit leads over both Democratic presidential candidates in the key swing state of Missouri with its 11 electoral votes, according to a Rasmussen Reports poll conducted March 24. Mccain leadds Hillary Clinton 50 percent to 41 percent and Barack Obama by 53 percent to 38 percent. The margin of error is 4.5 percent. While the McCain-Obama result is almost the same as a SurveyUSA poll conducted March 14-16, it differs on the Clinton-McCain match-up, where the difference between the two was within the margin of error. Rasmussen’s February poll had McCain running evenly with both Democrats.

Forty-two percent of voters say the economy is the top issue and 17 percent of them rate the economy as good or excellent. Sixteen percent say Iraq is the top issue.
