Rasmussen: Missouri - Obama 47 Romney 46
Rasmussen Reports ^ | 8/23/2012 | Rasmussen

Posted on 08/24/2012 6:43:31 AM PDT by GlockThe Vote

As the controversy over Republican Senate candidate Todd Akin’s “legitimate rape” comment continues, Mitt Romney’s lead in Missouri has vanished.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Missouri Voters finds President Obama with 47% support to Romney’s 46%. Three percent (3%) favor some other candidate in the race, and three percent (3%) more are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

I’m so made at this right now.

Akin and his cult of “purists” and lemmings are going to take us all down due to their delusional purity bs.

The only people attacking Akin are Republicans — we eat our own. Akin can still get off the ballot, but he can’t be replaced — assume all of you naysayers would rather McCaskill run unopposed?

Time to call the GOP and start a movement to kick Akin out of the party. Let him become an independent.

Well that’s it. The guy needs to go.

This one singular human being could make the election results and construction of the government be exactly what they are today.

Executive: Democrat
House: Republican
Senate: Democrat

All because of this one guy.

If I was Romney, I’d be chewing Akin out until he drops out.

Missouri is a McCain state, there’s no good reason why Obama should be up.

Oh, but Akin is on a “providential” mission....

Never mind, he’s screwing the future of America.

Knew this was coming. If MO is lost, so is the election. Period.

No serious person in the pro-life movement can assert that this is a year in which we enjoy the luxury of marginal Senate candiates.

If we fail to take the Senate, every pro-abortion mandate in Obamacare will stand forever, because we will not “own” the budget reconciliation process. This requires a GOP majority - to even get a repeal bill to the floor. If he remains as majority leader, Reid will NEVER allow a vote on repeal.

Perhaps the pro-life crowd will recognize this stark reality. They are only hurting their own cause by sticking with Akin to an electoral defeat. There is no “winning” in losing this senate election.

I agree Aikin’s gotta go, but Missouri won’t go for Obama. No way. This is a poll gauging people’s immediate reaction to Aikin’s goofy comments.No way they vote for Obama over this.

You are mistaken. Akin can absolutely be replaced, but it has to happen quickly. Either Brunner or Steelman can replace under MO election law if the candidate withdraws; there are no "sore loser" prohibitions.

That’s what I don’t get about the pro-life crowd. There is no pro-life if BO wins or we don’t take the majority in the Senate. Seems to me they are less concerned about dead babies than about there own self. Fools.

No way they vote for Obama over this.

Concur, but it will cost more GOP money to carry the state, and it will hurt down-ballot Republicans.

That's obviously better than Akin staying in. It will have the same end result (McCaskill wins) and it will be better for Romney in Missouri, and the GOP nationwide.

It would be better if Claire ran unopposed - the race is probably lost anyway - than for this ballot box poison to remain on the ballot. He is toxic to anyone with an (R) after their name.

R&R should use this as a Sistah Soljah momment and blast away at this fool.

This will force Romney to spend money in a state he should have carried easily. He probably still wins MO, but loses a ton of cash he could have spent elsewhere like OH or VA.

There is another nasty dimension to this. Everyone is blithely assuming that Senator Mark Kirk (R-IL), who is recovering from a massive stroke, will be able to return to the Senate in 2013. The Senator’s recovery is underway, but bad things can happen and his recovery could go sideways. Illinois has a Democratic governor, and would replace Kirk with a Dem in a New York minute.

Bottom line: EVERY seat matters. We have no room for error, and must prepare for EVERY contingency.

What a freaking nightmare. This nut is a contagion. At this point,I believe Akin is so toxic he could not even win his deep red House district.

And a special thanks to Huckabee for encouraging this nut's delusional bid for the Senate. This whole episode has seriously caused me to reconsider if some elements within the social conservative movement are worth it.

There are many phenomenal alternatives: Brunner, Steelman, Bond, Wagner, Emerson, among others.

In their absence, I say we nominate Porky Pig or Mickey Mouse. Either would poll better than Akin and have a better chance of winning without the collateral damage, as well.

Thanks a lot Akin. Happy now? How dos the re-election of Obama and McCaskill further the conservative cause?

That said, hard to believe MO voters are this stupid. Since Akin said something totally stupid about one issue, they now support Barack Obama and Obamacare? This country is doomed if voters are this stupid.
