Can Kinder/Page Poll Become Meaningful?

Sam Page is, as I've written several times before, a new kind of candidate for Missouri Lieutenant Governor. Unbeknownst to most of us, the Lieutenant Governor position has real duties, and many of those duties would be better served with an experienced physician fulfilling them. Who would you rather have working on affordable prescriptions for seniors - a do-nothing political hack or a bright, sincere young doctor with a passion for public service? It's kind of like having Dr. Carter from ER running against Mayor Quimby from The Simpsons. The choice is clear.

Missouri appears ready to choose Dr. Page. A recent poll shows that Sam Page, in a race against an incumbent Republican, has jumped out to a slim lead, despite being heavily outspent by an entrenched Republican with better name recognition.

The key to understanding the poll, though, is not in focusing on Sam Page's surprising 38/37 lead. The key is in paying attention to the 23% who are undecided. That is where the race will be decided, and money will be absolutely critical in helping those people make the right decision. If you want to invest in a statewide campaign where your dollars will make the biggest difference in chasing a scandal-racked Rove Republican from office, PLEASE visit this page and make as large a donation as you can afford.

It would be a shame if this encouraging poll turned out to be a false positive . . .
