Public Policy Polling says Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill hold a narrow 4-point lead over Rep. Todd Akin in the 2012 campaign's closing days.
She's at 48%, Akin at 44% in a poll of 835 likely voters Nov. 2 and Nov. 3. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.4%.

Split ticket voting.... MO indicates the presidential race is an R blowout.
But Democrat Nixon is a popular MO Governor and McCaskill will win.
If Akin can say something intelligent before the election , he can win.
Christians pro-life should not appear like ayatollahs
the SEIU owns PPP and uses its polling operation to influence voters. They can’t influence the Presidential race, but they can and are influencing the gubernatorial race and the Senate race. McCaskill’s ads have been very tough on Akin. His are good, but probably will not be enough to overcome his early gaff.
A Repub Senate was a 3 to 4 chance just a few months ago. Now, because of terrible candidates, the Senate is likely to stay Dem 2-1. Bright high school students could have run a better campaign than the Repubs.
If she wins it will be a squeaker. Triple Dem also shows Obama winning in most of the swing states.
Moreover, RR takes Missouri somewhere between 11 to 15% and not the 8% that PPP is saying here.
Incumbent McCaskill below 50%!
Statewide votes and a republican legislature have helped keep him in line. The state budget isn’t in bad shape and he has gone after some perceived cash cows. Although there aren’t massive job increases, we’ve picked up some small moves from companies that have multi-state staffs and want out of blue states. Those are beginning to add up.
We’ve had a couple nasty weather incidents over the past few years. The state has been great about coordinating with the feds and the local communities (at least from what I have seen and heard).
An Anti-Obama Democratic Governor.
Any one who governs there like O is toast. To win in a state like MO you have to be a real centrist.
“Incumbent McCaskill below 50%!”
Internals show 10% more women voting then men, (unlikely), as they have women supporting McCaskill 55% to 38%, this is where they are making up the difference.
Sarah Palin endorsed Sarah Steelman, but the good folks of MO chose Akin. Oh, that’s right - the Dem voters did knowing he was probably the weakest candidate. I heard him on Mark Levin, and even though he may be a strong conservative - well, let me say - he sounded whiny and kind of dumb. Just my opinion, of course.
Ain't gonna happen !
One or the other, but in this election climate, not both .. end of.
Isn’t PPP = Liberal push poll?
That’s my understanding, yes.
