The 2008 Missouri gubernatorial race is looking a lot like the 1972 U.S. presidential race: Nixon in a landslide.
Democratic Attorney General Jay Nixon has built a 51%-35% lead over each of his two Republican opponents, according to a new Rasmussen poll.
There's been some talk of a "unity bounce" once the Democratic primary between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton is finally resolved -- the former supporters of the loser will then be more likely to voice support for the winner, leading the general election poll numbers of the winner to go up.
I expect the same dynamic to benefit the Republicans in Missouri after the August 5 primary between Kenny Hulshof and Sarah Steelman, but, nonetheless, Nixon is the clear favorite.
