A new poll shows Missouri Attorney General Jay Nixon, a Democrat, holding nearly 20-point leads against either of his likely Republican opponents in the governor's race, Congressman Kenny Hulshof or state Treasurer Sarah Steelman.
A large majority of those polled -- 64 percent -- favored providing health care for all Americans, even if it means raising taxes. Nixon, who has sharply criticized the state's 2005 Medicaid cuts, stands to be the chief beneficiary of such sentiment.
"The climate's right for him," [pollster Del] Ali said. "It's absolutely his to lose."
