Skip to comments.Missouri's Senate race a statistical dead heat: poll

KANSAS CITY, Missouri (Reuters) - Democratic Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill holds a slim lead of 2 percentage points over Republican challenger Todd Akin - essentially a deadlock - in a race being closely watched following Akin's controversial comments on "legitimate rape," a poll released on Saturday showed.
McCaskill had been seen as one of the most vulnerable incumbent Democrats but has led Akin in most polls since he said in August that women could biologically defend themselves against pregnancy caused by "legitimate rape."
Akin said later he misspoke when he made the remark, which led to widespread rebukes even from within his own party, but the six-term member of the U.S. House resisted calls to step aside.
McCaskill led Akin by 45 percent to 43 percent, within the 4-point margin of error for the survey of 625 registered voters conducted from Tuesday through Thursday by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research.
The poll showed 8 percent undecided and 4 percent backing Libertarian candidate Jonathan Dine.

Anybody got polling data for Romney/Obama in this state?
If she is only at 45 it means she is losing. Final tally would be 53 Akin 45 McAskill
We are in a war against evil right now and we are in it to win. Keep the faith my FRiends.
Reuters? The jew-hating, anti-semitic neo-Nazis who create ridiculous, manufactured photos of Israelis killing children are telling us that the baby murderer McCaskill is winning the hearts and minds of Christians in Missouri?
Registered voters...maybe he can pull it out.
Jonah Vark made this post. Gingrich is going to hold a huge rally for Akin in Kansas City! let’s go Missouri!

More revelations of McCaskills corruption: Over the past several weeks, Claire McCaskill has been hit with revelations that her low-income housing empire received $1 million in stimulus dollars and nearly $40 million in taxpayer subsidies since she took office. A whistle-blower has also come forward and alleged that McCaskills husband was cutting business deals in the Senate Dining Room. This week, the National Legal and Policy Center uncovered another $20 million in stimulus funds that have benefited McCaskills network of companies. At issue are two new stimulus-created programs, TCAP and TCR, which created new investment opportunities for McCaskills husband. Read more.

SHOW ME COURAGE RALLY FOR AKIN ON OCT. 31ST AT UNION STATION. HOSTED BY NEWT GINGRICH.
WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Faith, Family, Freedom Fund, a super PAC associated with Family Research Council Action, is bringing a statewide, six-day bus tour through Missouri with one, simple message:
Senator Claire McCaskill’s policies are harmful to Missouri families.
The tour will make 25 stops in 23 cities during the six-day tour. The bus will make a stop at the
St. Louis Tea Party Headquarters located at
9966 Lin Ferry Rd. St. Louis MO 63123
on Sunday, October 28, 2012 at 7:00pm. The rally will feature several national and local speakers.
Senator McCaskill was the 51st vote for the government takeover of health care. She supported taxpayer funding of abortion, and opposed the Missouri constitutional amendment defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman, the Fund’s Chairwoman Connie Mackey states.
She is way out of step with the people of Missouri, and it’s time to repeal and replace Senator McCaskill with a senator who will stand for faith, family and freedom, Mackey concluded.
The public is encouraged to join the bus along the way to gather voter guides and other materials while hearing from leaders at the forefront of the conservative movement.
The Faith, Family, Freedom Fund is joined in this effort by other prominent leaders and groups such as Eagle Forum PAC, Phyllis Schlafly, Mike Huckabee, Pastor Stephen Broden, former Congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave, Susan B. Anthony List and many more.
St. Louis Rally Speakers:
Connie Mackey, Fund Chairwoman, Faith Family Freedom Fund
Colleen Holcomb, Executive Director, Eagle Forum PAC
Kristan Hawkins, President, Students for Life of America
Joe Ortwerth, Missouri Family Policy Council
Diane Edmondson, Republican National Coalition for Life
The worst part of this election is that it shouldn’t be close. I’m not pointing fingers at anyone here, though. Very disturbing that this was not wrapped up in favor of the GOP and America long ago.
Prayers for an Akin win.
