Results

Nixon won with a comfortable margin, even though it was a little closer than his 2008 victory. Even with President Barack Obama losing the state by a nine-point margin, Nixon and Senator Claire McCaskill both won reelection easily. Nixon, like McCaskill was able to get a huge number of votes from rural areas. Both Nixon and McCaskill were declared the winners of their respective races, even before the known Democratic strongholds of St. Louis, and Kansas City came in.
