Mitt Romney now has a double-digit lead in Missouri. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Missouri Voters, taken the night after the second presidential debate, finds Romney with 54% support to President Obama’s 43%. One percent (1%) favors some other candidate, and three percent (3%) remain undecided.

Hope this means Akin is leading, too.

You’d hope Romney with an 11% lead might just pull Akin over the line.

Definitely. I’m thinking Akin will squeak by, riding Romney’s coattails.

McCain won this state in 2008 by only 0.13%. +11 is a big difference at this point.

The left won’t see this as such,
but this is a massive repudiation of their ideology and worldview.

the idea that Missouri was in the tossup category for the past few weeks told me just how weak the polling accuracy has been - Obama has been genuinely toxic everwhere in Mizzou outside of the urban cores of St Lois & KC for 3 years now.

quite sure McCain won more votes than winning by 0.13%, its just that mess of St Louis had bus loads from Illinois trying to stack up the votes.

Claire has enlisted Quote REPUBLICAN Unquote women that have been raped to personally escoreate Akin in TV adds..
Just disgisting. This has gone too far and I believe is hurting Claire.

Missouri had a great record predicting elections up until last year they voted for the winner a number of times. Last year they narrowly went for the loser (though the loser lost handily in the end). Easier O gets trounced this year or Missouri is no longer predictive

I’d say this year, the chicago busloads leave Missouri alone as its out of reach but watch for the busloads of dodgy voters head north from Chicago towards Wisconsin to vote.

Missouri’s been smacking down Leftist ballot initiatives for 3 years. They voted for more gun freedom. They voted not to participate in Obamacare.

Missourians, outside of the (shrinking) urban zones, are quite conservative.

Exactly.Osama came *this* close to taking MO in '08.This time he'll be lucky to get 40% of the vote.It's the swing that counts.

Something seems not quite right with Rasmussen’s polling this year. His state polls are showing consistent, substantial improvement for Romney. But his national poll stays neck and neck. I think he may be trying to make it look like a horse race til the end.

This is interesting - MO is usually regarded as the bellwether state since its population reflects the national average with uncanny accuracy. Its sided with the winner in every election except 2008 and then it went for McCain.

I believe that split is exactly what we’ll see in the nationwide vote come November 6th - and it won’t be close at all as many of us think - and Mitt Romney will be our next President!

Does anyone know if Obama was contesting MO? Was he showing ads? Did he recently pull them to focus resources on OH?

We'll see. Romney may be up by double digits but the Democrat that's running for re-election as governor is also up by double digits as well so it doesn't appear that the voters have a problem splitting their tickets.

Sounds more like Akin is pulling Romney along.

The Liberal PhonyCons just a few weeks ago were telling Real Conservatives that “Akin will bring down Romney in Missouri”...now its “Akin is riding Romney bootstraps”

Exactly! I’ve been telling everyone for months, now, that there’s no way in hell Missouri is a toss-up state!

Cheers!

No, Obama isn’t contesting Missouri. The only Obama ads I’ve seen on TV, here, are national ads. Also, Romney isn’t advertising here, either.

As for Todd Akin... I’d be surprised if he wins. 99 percent of all ads for that race are coming from McCaskill and her special interest groups. She’s been able to paint him as a nut job. Because of the Repuglicans ridiculous efforts to abandon him, he hasn’t had the money to defend himself against her allegations.

Looks like the DemonRats are going to keep the Senate Majority. Thanks, Repuglicans! (Morons!)

This 12-point swing is about the average of the change we’ve seen in OH absentee ballots (in the Rs favor).

This is comforting. I was a little worried the Akin stuff might put Romney in jeopardy.

I hope Romney has some coat tails in Missouri that benefit Akin, and if so I hope Akin is a forgiving sort when it comes to supporting other Conservatives in the GOP in the Senate, whenever they are voting in agreement with Romney.

How do you figure that? The same data shows McCaskill leading Akin 51-43. http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/elections/election_2012/election_2012_senate_elections/missouri/election_2012_missouri_senate
