A chat with Dr. Daniel Ponder: A look ahead to Nov. 2

Ponder

Dr. Daniel Ponder, associate professor of political science at Drury University, shared his perspectives and analysis Wednesday with SGFNews about what to watch for on Nov. 2.

His take: Missouri’s election isn’t likely to bring any huge surprises. Republican Roy Blunt, who leads in the polls against Democrat Robin Carnahan, is predicted to win the U.S. Senate seat held by Republican Kit Bond. And the 7th District House seat, held for the past 14 years by Blunt, is likely to remain Republican.

Check out the entire podcast for Ponder’s political conversation with editor Jonathan Groves.
