Two of her three Republican challengers still lead Democratic incumbent Claire McCaskill in Missouris 2012 U.S. Senate race but by slightly narrower margins.
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Missouri finds former State Treasurer Sarah Steelman ahead of McCaskill by seven points 49% to 42%. Steelman had a 10-point lead a month ago. Two percent (2%) still prefer another candidate given this matchup, and six percent (6%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Congressman Todd Akin posts a five-point lead over McCaskill 48% to 43%. Two percent (2%) like someone else in the race, and seven percent (7%) are undecided. Last month, Akin led by seven.
The incumbent also trailed retired businessman John Brunner by seven points in mid-March, but now the two run dead even with 45% support each. Three percent (3%) favor some other candidate, and seven percent (7%) are undecided.

If these numbers hold up, the Establishment may drop its opposition to Sarah Steelman. Since Tom Schwich decided not to run, she may be the strongest candidate available.
Todd Akin is more conservative than Steelman. I hope he gets the Rep. nod.
I still can’t imagine how McCaskill won in a conservative state in the first place and then even after her disastrous town hall meetings, managed to get reelected... Who the heck is voting for this liberal lunatic?
She’s only serving her first term, which she narrowly won when George W. Bush was unpopular.
Yeah I looked it up myself. It seems so long ago I thought thst was her first term. There should be no way possible she gets re-elected...
But, oh well..... By then, Ms. McCaskill had "won" the election and became our Senator. She is now finishing up her first (and hopefully, only) term as Missouri Senator.
Four voters cast ballots in the first hour of voting in one St. Louis polling place.
26 votes were counted. Does that tell you anything ?
If I recall correctly, there was some question of casino owners sending BUSLOADS of voters from OUT OF STATE to the polls in the waning hours of the election. They counted those votes. You can take these polls and throw them in the trash. You can’t out vote the vote counters.
Curious how Todd Akin is “...more conservative than Steelman?”
