I'm actually content with these numbers for now. It will get Democrats to shut up that Missouri will be an easy pick-up for them.
Blunt wins this. I'm calling it now.

This right now is the Democratic only hope for a pick-up in 2010, as of right now.

They still have a shot in New Hampshire and Ohio, though I think their chances there are fading by the day.

Blunt will crash and burn in the primary.

Draft Sara Steelman for Senator!

This absolutely won't be an easy pickup for the Dems.  Actually, this shouldn't even be considered as a lead.

Yeah... I'm going to suggest not calling close races a year in advance.

Ohio yes. In New Hampshire, Ayotte is running an invisible campaign from which she surfaces every few weeks to make a gaffe, and is likely to limp through the primary with around 44% of the vote. The NH GOP is bankrupt and badly split. That said, given her competition, she still has a decent shot.

I agree with Dan, for a change, in general, on this one. 

Blunt is a stronger candidate for Missouri than most give him credit for (I believe he's stronger than the oft-praised Talent, for example, who I've often thought runs weaker than average for a Republican in MO).  And he'll almost undoubtedly be facing a much more favorable electorate.

It's still a long way off - but it'll be one of the races to definitely watch.

It has not become conventional wisdom among Dems that MO is an "easy" pickup.  The most I have heard is that Carnahan is slightly to modestly favored.  Per the 2010 Senate Predictions Page, only 2 out of 93 people have ranked the race as "Strong D."  It looks like mthforu94 is setting up a strawman.

Blunt may have assets, but he has baggage as well.  To call the race for him a year before the election, in a swing state, against a candidate as strong as Carnahan, is foolish.

Looking at the Missouri US Senate Races.
The most popular Republican US Senator was John Danforth- who was percieved as a moderate. Danforth was elected in 1976- open seat vacated by Democrat- Stuart Symington. the original Democratic nominee Jerry Litton was killed in a plane crash- Danforth won by a 57-42 percent margin. In 1982- He narrowly won re-election against Lt Governor Harriet Woods. In 1988- Danforth beat now Governor Jay Nixon by a 68-32 percent margin.  Danforth retired in 1994.   The Republican Nominee in 1994 MO US Senate Race was John Aschcroft- who was a former two term Governor- He defeated Alan Wheat a Black US Congressman from Kansas City by a 60-36 percent margin. Aschcroft became a Santorum like US Senator. Ashcrot was in a tough re-election campaign against then Democratic Governor Mel Carnahan. Carnahan was killed in a plane crash before he posthumously defeated Aschcroft in 2000. Carnahan's widow Jean- was appointed to the Seat but narrowly lost in the 2002 special election to Jim Talent- who was a former Congressman from the St Louis area and the GOP nominee for Governor in 2000. Talent narrowly lost re-election in 2006 to Claire McCaskill.
Robin is a much stronger candidate than her mother was in 2002 and her father was in 2000 against John Aschcroft.
