ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) – Mitt Romney has snared support from 48 percent of voters nationwide and surpassed President Obama’s favor in Missouri, according to a Rasmussen poll released Thursday.
Romney’s support nationwide is mirrored by voters in Missouri.
The poll says 48 percent of likely voters in Missouri support Romney versus President Obama. President Obama claims 45 percent.
The report states the numbers could have been affected by a number of factors including jobs reports and the conclusion of party conventions.
The survey was conducted on Tuesday and polled 500 likely voters in Missouri.
