Skip to comments.Family Research Council poll of Missouri: Akin 45, McCaskill 42
Posted on 08/29/2012 12:45:32 PM PDT by Hojczyk
The Family Research Council poll was conducted by Wenzel Strategies from Aug. 27 to Aug. 28, testing 829 voters for a margin of error of plus or minus 3.38 percent. The sample was 32.7 percent Democrats, 34.1 percent Republicans and 33.2 percent independents.
I dont remotely believe that Akin is winning right now, but I also dont believe that McCaskills double-digit margin will survive September. Hence Reince Priebuss conundrum.
Roy Blunt also said this morning that he still thinks Akin will quit, but Im not sure he himself quite believes it.
Supposedly people are leaning on Huckabee too to get him to change his mind and nudge Akin towards the exit. I dont think thats out of the question, actually:
Huckabee may be framing this as a Mount Carmel moment now, but if the polls still look awful for Akin in two weeks, hes going to get nervous about being held responsible for almost singlehandedly propping this guy up on the way to defeat.
Thatd be a major black mark on his record ahead of 2016, and hes already got enough of those (the latest being his endorsement of Dewhurst over Cruz).
Thats what this FRC poll is all about, I assume reassuring social conservatives who might be wavering in light of the recent gruesome polls from Missouri that Akins hanging in there.

He sure as hell isn't going to quit if he sees this poll. I wouldn't either.
At least they are fair with their percentages.
Never under estimate the power of prayer.
Hence Reince Priebuss conundrum
Just Reince the soap out of your eyes Reince and stop crying..
Tantrums dont look pretty on RINOs...
Oh, they’ll find a way to get plenty of money flowing to him, if they need him to win in order to take the Senate...
Where are all the anti-Akin posters?..crickets.....
It will be interesting to see if this poll is truly accurate. If Akin remains ahead, what will the GOP do to help him? To do nothing is to play into Sandra Fluke’s and the DNC’s (Debbie Blabbermouth Schultz’s?)lies.
Maybe the best thing would be to rely on surrogate organizations and PACS to aid in this campaign?
I think Mike Huckabee, who promoted Todd, on Fox News should donate at least $10 million of his own money to him. He wouldnt even miss it. Akin isnt going to back out so put up or shut up Huck. Otherwise, youre just full of hot air and could care less if McCaskill won. Bty, my gut feeling is that Akin can still win with a little help from conservative Missouri voters and a landslide victory for Romney that lets Akin ride his long coat tails.
LearJet Claire is tied at the hip to Ubama, and she's going down with him.
Very interesting. With God all things are possible.
If so, crow will never have tasted better.
Blunt is GOPe! Ignore him.
I always beleived conservatives will win when they stand up to liberals and RINOs.
Anybody but McKill...exactly
For all those who are voting for Romney ONLY because they hate Obama...
Obama is to Romney as McCaskill is to Akin.
If Obi can’t energize his “base” in KC and StL, then Akin may pull this off.
My feeling is that he said a couple of sentences that were somewhat shaky and shouldn’t have said. He claims now that he had evidence in book form to back himself up.
Look at the crap the Dems have pulled starting with Clinton on down and no one complains. At least Akin has the stones to stand up for himself and not cow tow to anybody. That’s more than anyone can say about his Republican buddies.
