Show-Me State Final: McCaskill May Unseat Talent in Key Senate Take-Away: In interviews conducted through Monday night 11/6/06, SurveyUSA's final forecast in the Missouri U.S. Senate contest is: Democratic challenger McCaskill 50%, incumbent Republican Jim Talent 44%. These results are based on a 3-day rolling average of interviews conducted Saturday 11/4, Sunday 11/5 and Monday 11/6. Earlier, today Monday 11/6/06, SurveyUSA had released data based on interviews conducted Friday/Saturday/Sunday that showed McCaskill up by 9 points. Those results are available here. It is important to study the day-to-day movement in this poll. This remains, at the last hour, every bit the volatile race it has been throughout. Turnout will be key for both candidates. With the addition of the Monday 11/6 data, the 3-day rolling average also tightens the outcome of Amendment 2. Study the day-to-day movement on that ballot measure carefully, as well.
