Rasmussen: McCaskill 48%, Akin 38%

By on 8.23.12 | 11:22AM

A Rasmussen Reports poll taken yesterday of 500 likely voters in Missouri has Claire McCaskill, who should be the single most vulnerable Democrat in the US Senate, 10 points ahead of Todd "Legitimate Rape" Akin.

Akin needs to be told (as I'm sure he is being told) that this is no longer about him and that he needs to be out of this race immediately. I think there's a 20% chance he gets out.

As for the question of whether a Missouri court allows him to leave the race, I think it would seem so hyperpartisan to refuse that I believe he would be allowed to leave, even by a Democrat-majority State Supreme Court.
