New polling from Missouri shifts that state’s Senate race from tossup to leans Republican, according to Rasmussen Reports.

Roy Blunt now leads Robin Carnahan by 6 points in the latest Rasmussen survey of the Missouri Senate race.

And new data from Nevada Wednesday shifted that state’s Senate race from tossup to leans Democratic.

With three months to go, Rasmussen Reports polling shows Republicans are poised to pick up Democrat-held Senate seats in three states — Arkansas, Indiana, and North Dakota. Two others are leaning that way — Delaware and Pennsylvania. Arkansas Democrat Blanche Lincoln is the only incumbent senator projected to lose a seat. The others are open-seat races following retirements by Democratic incumbents.

At the moment, no Republican-held seats appear headed for the Democratic column.

Just five states are in the tossup category. Outside of the tossups, projections indicate that Democrats probably can count on having 50 Senate seats after Election Day, while Republicans will hold 45.

Four of the five tossup states are Democratic seats, while the GOP holds the other.

Among the four Democratic seats in the tossup category, two are open seat races (Colorado and Illinois). Democratic incumbents in the tossup category include Patty Murray of Washington and Russ Feingold of Wisconsin.

The Republican tossup is in Florida, where Republican Marco Rubio is essentially even with Gov. Charlie Crist, a former Republican who turned independent.
