Santorum, Randles lead recent poll

Rick Santorum

— According to recent public polling, Missouri establishment favorites are losing ground to their anti-establishment challengers.

According to the Democratic polling company Public Policy Polling, social conservative Rick Santorum leads establishment favorite Mitt Romney by 11 points. Romney has trumpeted support of several leading Missouri Republicans, including former Sen. Jim Talent, Sen. Roy Blunt, and several members of the Missouri legislature.

The poll was taken before Santroum visited Missouri, where he attracted nearly 300 to a rally in St. Charles.

In the same poll, tea party favorite Bill Randles led establishment pick Dave Spence by three points. The Spence campaign points out that they have been in the race less than three months, and are just rolling out a new ad hoping to boost their name identification with Missouri voters.

And in the Senate race, though St. Louis businessman John Brunner is beginning to close the gap, former State Treasurer Sarah Steelman leads Brunner and Rep. Todd Akin by nine points.

Brunner has risen nearly 12 points since PPP’s last poll in September, before he spent some $700,000 on television and radio ads.

The poll, taken from January 27-29, has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.1 percent.

    Commentary on the Missouri/ GOV/
    Randles/Spence race!!!

    The difference is this Bill Randles did NOT have any help from the Post Dispatch or powerful political insiders and Cronies. Dave Spence on the other would not exist without political insiders and Cronies!!! Randles deserves a lot of credit he did this all on his own, by communicating his message to the public. Word on the street is Spence will not debate Randles and will use his money and throw a bunch of TV ads up. Wow,,, Really if that is true it is pitiful
