GOP nominee Donald Trump’s lead in the State of Missouri continues to hold and now stands at a plus 9.2 in the RealClearPolitics average of polls.

The largest lead for Trump in the Show Me State is an Emerson poll which found the real estate mogul up a full 13 points in its poll taken between September 9 and 13. The poll taken of 600 likely Missouri voters shows Trump with 47 to Hillary Clinton’s 34 percent. The margin of error was 3.9 percent.

Trump’s lowest lead in Missouri was seen in a recent Monmouth poll of 406 likely voters taken between October 9 and 11 which found Trump leading Hillary 46 to 41 points. The MOE was 4.9 in the Monmouth poll.

These results seem essentially unchanged in the RCP Average from as far back as September 29.

Meanwhile, GOP Senate candidate Roy Blunt seems to be holding a slight lead over challenger Democrat Jason Kander with an RCP average of plus 2.3 points.

But not all GOP candidates are leading. In the race for Governor it appears that Democrat Chris Koster is enjoying a lead over Republican Eric Greitens. RCP gives the race a plus 8.4 for the Democrat.

However, a new Momnmouth poll finds that the Republican has cut Democrat Koster’s lead to a statistical tie, proving that the race is still a volatile one. With only weeks to go before Election Day, Monmouth finds Democrat Koster at 46 percent while his Republican opponent, Eric Greitens, is at 43. With a margin of error of 4.9 percent, that makes the race a statistical tie as far as Monmouth is concerned.
