First is that Akun and Murdoch really didn’t address abortion it was comments about rape. That said they can take as much credit for this poll as any hag on Emily’s list. Their misogynistic and factually untrue statements were used against us. They gave the enemy the rope.
Given the Democrat Senate trend nationally, I now believe that both Akin and Murdock would have been defeated even without the “rape” controversy, for they may have sat on an imaginary lead, taking comfort in Romney’s lead in both of their states.
