St. Louis – A new poll of likely Missouri voters shows Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jay Nixon continuing to lead Republican Kenny Hulshof.

The poll from the Post Dispatch and KMOV TV shows Nixon ahead of Hulshof 50 percent to 43 percent. However Hulshof continues to narrow the gap.

During Hulshof's primary battle with state treasurer Sarah Steelman, he trailed Nixon by 17 points.

A Maryland firm randomly called 800 likely voters in Missouri last week.

The poll's margin of error is 3.5 percentage points
