Missouri: Baker Had Small Lead in Two-Month-Old Poll

State Rep. Judy Baker (D) held a minuscule lead going into the final stretch of a crowded Show Me State Democratic primary, according to a poll conducted by her campaign nearly two months ago and released to Roll Call on Wednesday.

The survey, conducted from June 2 to 4 of 400 likely primary voters, showed the EMILY’s List-backed candidate with 20 percent of the primary vote, while half of voters surveyed were undecided. The poll was taken before the TV ad bombardment began in the affordable 9th district — covered by relatively cheap media markets.

According to the ballot test, 14 percent of the likely primary voters interviewed picked former state House Speaker Steve Gaw (D), 9 percent chose former state Sen. Ken Jacob (D) and 6 percent chose Marion County Commissioner Lyndon Bode.

The Momentum Analysis poll had a 4.9-point margin of error.

Show Me State voters go to the polls on Aug. 5.
