Ace of Spades ^ | 08/23/2012 | CAC

Posted on 08/23/2012 7:07:50 AM PDT by nhwingut

Rasmussen will be releasing a poll this morning showing Akin costing us dearly in Missouri: McCaskill 48% Akin 38%.

Time to pack it up and stop screwing us, big guy.

Is the “providential” message you are looking for Rep. Akin?

No surprise here unfortunately.

Hopefully there is another state Senate seat we can replace this with. If we lose the Senate, it’s not going to make us conservatives look good at all (even though most of us thought he should have stepped down).

Rasmussen is clearly part of the liberal media elitists and/or party bosses. LOL!

When was it taken? It will be interesting to see if this evens out again as the story dies down. If not, he has to get out.

Akin is such an idiot. No surprise he believed the DEMOCRAT PPP poll that showed him up. They did that solely to give him hope to stay in the race.

The Dems play morons like Akin like a fiddle.

If it’s a legitimate poll, the Republican body should find ways to try to shut that whole Akin thing down.

Yes and the pressure for him to quit behind the scenes is going to be enormous. He’ll be gone like Anthony Wiener was.

There are many opportunities for Senate seats this year. The problem is that BA (before Akin) we were favored to take the Senate, since this seat was “likely R”. Now it’s “likely D”. So we probably have about even odds to take the Senate now, instead of being the prohibitive favorites like before.

I suggest checking out RCP’s Senate races page.

If this asshat gets out of the race now, then I pledge to stroke a check to the Missouri GOP to help cover the cost of new ballots. Otherwise, I will stroke a check instead to whatever third party candidate runs against Akin's ego. America can't take another two years of Harry Reid as Senate Majority Leader.

If Akin were really pro-life, then he would do what it takes to ensure that McCaskill doesn't win. As it turns out, Akin is far more pro-Akin than he is pro-life.

That election was lost the day he won the nomination. He was pre-destined to say something stupid at anytime.

It's a negative bump. We see bumps all the time. They level out. This one too. For a man of Todd Akin's voting record, it is worth riding this bump out :

From my reading of the Missouri law, I think he has to hang in there about three more weeks. Otherwise, he can only be replaced if he dies or is ruled ineligible for the office. I could be wrong as it is rather convoluted.

All Akin had to do to win was keep his damned mouth shut for 10 weeks. He couldn’t even manage that.

Akin and his supporters will blame this on the "party bosses" for not supporting him. It was them that cost him a 21 point swing (from up 11 to down 10).

Nothing to do with his theory on vagina goalies making kick saves on incoming sperm pucks.

“The dems wont allow that to happen.”

Well of course they won't. If a Dem had said the exact same thing; wouldn't most R's use it to bash the person as being a woman hater and insensitive?

No his candidacy is dead. It is time for him to resign from the GOP and withdraw. Let somebody else carry the torch.

10 point deficits are rarely made up in two months, unless video of McCaskill setting kittens on fire turns up.

Hopefully the only damage Akin has done is to his own campaign and it did not spread to the other races.

Though it would be an improvement, we cannot get rid of ObamaCare without taking the Senate.

McCaskill got what she paid for. Ugh. Didn’t Missouri Republicans WONDER why the liberal Dem McCaskill was buying ads in SUPPORT OF AKIN?

This entire trainwreck is so depressing.

LOL. What a shock. Destroy a guy in the media for 5 straight days (including the "conservative" media) and his poll numbers go down. Duh.

If the GOP looses this seat, don't blame Akin. Blame the Hannity, Coulter, Malkin, etc. circular firing squad. With friends like these, who needs enemies?

I think it would be wise for Akin to step down now. But if it goes into next week, and there's another poll then showing him 10+ down--losing ground, not recovering--then Akin MUST withdraw, and he needs to do so BY LABOR DAY, before the Democrat Convention, which would then be all about the "War on Women."

But I don't think Akin, who lives in an evangelical, home-schooling cocoon in West St. Louis County, who thinks he's on a mission from God and this persecution is proof of it, who has had easy elections here in this safe district and hasn't had to speak nimbly in the spotlight--I don't think he's capable of that--I don't think Akin listens to reason.
