Poll: Akin support drops, voters want another candidate
Politico ^ | 8/25/12 | Alexander Burns

Posted on 08/25/2012 10:54:11 PM PDT by DallasBiff

The most remarkable stat in the poll may be this from the crosstabs: even voters who say they are supporting Akin think he should withdraw by a 16-point margin, 50 percent to 34 percent. That suggests there's a floor for a Republican Senate candidate in Missouri, but that conservatives in the state would rather have a different option in the race

I know this is from politico, and I also know that the rabid anti-GOPe'rs will be on this thread like white on rice, but the fact remains, that Todd Akin did not make a good first impression.

IMO, he's out creeped Claire McCaskill, and Claire McCaskill has a war chest to keep on her message, that she is not as much a creep as Akin is.

I know, I know, Akin is a good conservative, but he has to live with his words and those words gave McCaskill and the democrats an armory full of ammunition.

Did you know that Obama said his faith in Jesus is not only real, but LEGITIMATE too!

I guess faith isn’t just faith to Obama.

60% - 70% of Republicans want a different presidential candidate than Romney.

Are we going to get a replacement?

I doubt your figures, and in my primary, I voted for Gingrich, but can you show me where, Romney said such things as "legitimate rape" or that the female reproductive system shuts down during rape.

I agree, but conservatives are all about first impressions, and Akin, who held a cozy house seat and faced no real opposition, came to face to reality, and he did not do well when he was out of his bubble.

A 9 point difference btw Akin and McCaskill is still too close for Politico and the liberal establishment, particularly given that his comment alienated a great number of female voters. I’m beginning to think he can come back.

As a Congressman for 12 years, this wasn't his first impression to a lot of Missourians.

He's not dropping out so it's time for Republicans to give him a second chance and vote for the lesser of two evils, Anybody But McCaskill. If Akin flip-flops on the rape issue that still won't make him 2% the flip-flopper that Romney is.

Please, he held a safe seat for 12 years, and most Missourians(and Americans in whole) do not even know who their congressman is. Just look at those famous Jay Leno and Sean Hannity interviews.

Face it, Akin said stupid things and the liberal media pounced on it.

Just think if Akin used his brain, and said that the baby should not be killed because of the sin of the father, rather than going into such things as "legitimate rape".

He wouldn't have gone from a lead to a 9 point deficit.

And where has Romney stated that the Boy Scouts, by government fiat, has to do that.

BTW, last weekend, I bought a vastly overpriced bag of popcorn at a supermarket proffered by the Boy Scouts, just to show solidarity against their assault by the liberals.

Well I have to say Jedi, that you are not helping his cause...accusing good conservatives on this site of being rinos,homosexuals, illegal drug users , and all manner of libelous crap, just because your man Akin’s screw up has scared the ever living daylights out of everybody that understands the stakes and political realities for this country if we do not win the senate.

In fact, I would say you are a lead weight for Akin’ s side at this point with your vitriol. You are starting to resemble the famous shakedown antics of Jesse Jackson.

Take a break, breathe deep, pray and go after the real enemies of this republic and give your fellow patriots a break.

Because the media always backs the most liberal candidate. That’s great for Democrats and bad for Republicans. The absolute zombie-like, mind-numbing responses people gave when asking why they voted for Romney in the primary shows that most primary voters were led around like absolutely ignorant, unthinking sheep.

My understanding is that Mr. Akins is a mental lightweight and only won a 3 way Republican primary because he was supported by the Democrat Party and Democrat funding. Sarah Palin backed a different candidate and most conservative groups also backed another candidate. The two conservative candidates split the Republican vote and Akins won a narrow victory by getting Democrats and to vote in the Republican primary.

Then the Democrat controlled MSM asked the dummy Akins the standard gotcha questions about rape and abortion etc and just stood back and watched him self destruct. Then Democrat money men(Soros?) promised Akins large financial contributions if he would stay in the race and not make way for a more intelligent candidate.

Claire the liberal was dead in the water. Anyone with an ounce of intelligence could have easily beaten her. But the Democrats maneuvered to get the one candidate in the entire state too dumb to beat her as her opponent.

You don't have to convince me or anyone that Akin's comments were ill-advised. But they were not illegal or immoral activity so the outrage from his own party is uncalled for. We definitely don't need everyone becoming little Karl Rover lapdogs who think they know exactly what candidates can and can't win elections.

Not to mention, I thought conservatives were supposed to be for local control and states' rights, not a centralized bureaucracy giving marching orders from the top down. This is a Missouri issue. Let the state exercise its rights and stop trying to force them to back one candidate or another. It's not the president's or a presidential candidate's job to select who a state nominates to be their own representative. I will back whichever Republican or conservative candidate the voters of Missouri back.

Romney is in favor of the government giving the same adoption rights to homosexual couples that is given to heterosexual couples. Don't you think we should replace Romney with a candidate that not only is a conservative but has a better chance at beating Obama?

Additionally under Romney's REPEAL AND REPLACE plan, he will repeal Obamacare on the condition that all 50 states are required to implement some form of Romneycare. So rather than one big socialist medicine fiasco, he wants 50 small socialist fiascoes.

And your panties are all in a bunch over Akin, huh?

Akin is the least of our problems. Romney and Obama are the big problems.

I understand that folks are blaring on both sides Jedi....and if we are each reflective and soul searching enough, we get when we have gone too far. But if we wait on others to relent before we even begin to reflect on our own actions, what good does that do? You and others defending Akin have had some good points but your stubborn refusal to give others the benefit of doubt in their concern for our country is not helping matters at all.

All we can do is start with ourselves. We can’t control others. This election is not all about Akin or social issues and neither is it about simply fiscal issues. It is about the whole shooting match this time....it is simply about liberty or tyranny. Pick your battles.....but we have to win the war. Our very survival as a republic is at stake FRiend.

That sounds like one of those nonsense memes that people keep repeating because it helps their cause despite them having no evidence to support it.

The two conservative candidates split the Republican vote and Akins won a narrow victory by getting Democrats and to vote in the Republican primary.

Akin is STAUNCHLY CONSERVATIVE with a far more conservative voting record than Romney or Ryan. He voted against sequestration defense spending cuts and against No Child Left Behind to name a few Ryan was wrong on. As for Democrats voting in the Republican primary, show me the evidence of that. That kind of silliness is often talked about, but rarely if ever has been proven to happen in big enough numbers to affect an election. In this case it would also assume that Akin was seen as a bad candidate by many people, even though he won 6 consecutive house terms. That doesn't even pass the smell test. So enough of compiling this unsubstantiated conjecture to try and bolster your case.

I ate breakfast lunch and dinner at 3 different Chick-fil-A's on 8/1/12.

Romney refused to comment on the whole matter saying that it wasn't part of his campaign. Later he indicated that he felt that homosexuals should be allowed in the Boy scouts. Yesterday he was bragging about how successful Romneycare was and how proud he was of his accomplishment there.

And you're worried about Akin?

Akin is one of us.

Romney is one of them.

I’m not giving Emperor Palpatine the benefit of the doubt. He is a professed libertarian who has been openly hostile and insulting on this forum to the Christian conservative wing of the party. There’s no doubt to benefit from in his case.

I’m not accusing other Akin critics of anything inparticular, other than some who are clearly just spewing talking points without having thought things through. I’m just trying to point out where I think their reasoning is flawed.

And I refuse to feel any self-doubt at all about defending a good man and a good conservative Congressman like Akin against a hostile barrage of attacks like few have ever seen in politics. Rarely do you see both parties attacking one person so intensely. I hate to think how anyone would feel under that kind of unrelenting barrage of criticism, knowing that they did nothing wrong under either God’s law or the law of the land. It appears a lot of conservatives are acting emotionally, out of fear that they’re going to lose this election. Bad things happen when a mob of people are motivated by fear, things like the Salem witch trials.

If Mr. Akin is such a strong candidate why is he trailing Claire McCaskill by 10 points. Are you saying it is because she is a super strong candidate that no conservative could possibly defeat?

Why are the Democrats all trying to keep Mr. Akins from dropping out of the race if they don't support him? That makes no sense. I never said Mr. Akins was not a conservative. I said he is probably not intelligent enough to win against a very weak candidate.

C'mon. Anyone being criticized like that by both parties for several days is going to suffer a point loss. If every single Democrat came out today and called Obama a Communist who's trying to destroy America, don't you think he'd suffer some point losses?

Also, Akin was up by 9 points before this gaffe. So the rumored Democrat strategy of supposedly helping to nominate him had been failing pretty miserably for a while until a rather random event. Not buying the conspiracy theories on this one that the Democrats had this planned all along.

ALCON Now hear this: We will all cease and desist from continued public pummeling of one of our own (at least we will, if we have any sense):

http://sultanknish.blogspot.com/2012/08/friday-afternoon-roundup-carjackers-and.html

The link contains comments on several topics, one of which is a choice piece entitled: "The Akin Follies."

It starts like this:

THE AKIN FOLLIES

What I have to say isn't so much about Akin specifically, but in general terms how to react to cases like this. Much of the public takes its general impression of whether there is a problem by how the people who are running things react to it. If they react with hysteria, apologies, condemnations and a circular firing squad... they assume that there is a problem and that it is a very serious problem and that it indicates a basic failure of leadership.

Snip

Read and heed.

Ya know, I wouldn't feel that pressure, because I wouldn't have made such idiotic statements, such as "legitimate rape", but I am not a martyr for the conservative cause, all I am is a common blue collar worker, who is looking for a non Joe Biden gaffe prone conservative to defeat Claire Mccaskill.
