WASHINGTON (AP) — A new poll shows Republican John McCain and Democrat Barack Obama are still running about even in Missouri. The Suffolk University presidential poll of 600 likely Missouri voters had McCain at 45 percent and Obama at 44 percent. The poll was conducted Thursday through Sunday. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points. Of the Obama supporters, 14 percent said a factor in their position was a desire to vote against President Bush. Six percent said their vote was against McCain. About 21 percent of McCain's supporters said a factor in their stance was the desire to vote against Obama. Four percent said it was a vote for vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin.
