Posted on 08/23/2012 8:44:23 AM PDT by BarnacleCenturion
What a difference one TV interview can make. Embattled Democratic incumbent Claire McCaskill has now jumped to a 10-point lead over her Republican challenger, Congressman Todd Akin, in Missouris U.S. Senate race. Most Missouri Republicans want Akin to quit the race while most Missouri Democrats want him to stay.
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the Show Me State finds McCaskill earning 48% support to Akins 38%. Nine percent (9%) like some other candidate in the race, and five percent (5%) are undecided.

Great news!! Thanks again Akin for your “principled” stand!
Wow... I am sooooooo shocked!! /s
oh yeah, he is principled alright, but mostly about keeping himself in power... he wont have to worry about that much longer...
Drop out, moron!
McCaskill has been the brains and the money behind the Akin campaign. She picked her target well and managed to hoodwink the GOP into nominating the only person in the entire state of Missouri whom she could possibly beat in November.
Faced with that unassailable fact, I am amazed at the number of people who continue to support this guy. He needs to go.
AKIN NEEDS TO GO NOW!
yes, he made a mistake and apologised...had he been a Dhimmicrat making that statement he would have been protected by the party and the MSM and you probably would never have seen the light of day
but it wasnt and it didnt.
the stupidity of his statement requires him to resign NOW....if he is that stupid about that issue, he is that stupid about other issues....he needs to go.
The good news is McCaskill is still not over 50%.
47% view Akin very unfavorable. Tough to overcome that one.
Give it a week for the outrage to die down, and for Akin to make his case and his apology tour. Then we’ll have a better picture of where it stands. McCaskill still has to defend ER record from now to November.

McCaskill took your money and your freedom Missouri - and you’re going to reward her with re-election?
If I were a liberal politician, I’d be wiping my ass with Mo voters too....
“The good news is McCaskill is still not over 50%.”
Don’t count on it. Many rats probably told the pollster that they are voting for Akin just to encourage him to stay in the race.
Little if any money to campaign and now confirmation that he can’t win. He is out within a week IMO.
She doesn't need to be if Akin stays in and Palin's call for a third party challenger comes to pass.
I’m annoyed, however, by the stupidity and vapidity of voters who can’t see for themselves what a stupid comment this was, and, how in he grand scheme of things ...this means not a WHIT.
Our economy is about to go over a cliff, and here we sit around wringing hands over a silly comment about rape and abortion ... do not people realize that if our government completely goes bankrupt, that if we begin to suffer double digit unemployment numbers ....there will be NO police to prevent the majority of rapists from committing their crimes?? Do they not realize a society in chaos will ultimately result in a loss of rights for everyone, PARTICULARLY poorer women and children??
People are seriously so sheeply and stupid ... I’m just not sure how long this republic is really going to last. with McCatfish in, this process will surely be played out all that much faster.
He’s toast. It’s over

He put himself above everything there is no way I would ever ever vote for him.
Well Loser here is your Poll
And that is exactly the rationale Akin will use to continue this failed crusade. A few days ago, he was citing the PPP poll that (while sampling R+9), showed him a point ahead. Now he's going to say... "See?.. I'm weathering the storm. I must stay in because God wants me here for the people of Missouri."
