Can you imagine the look on the face of Chris Matthews if Todd Akin unseats Senator Claire McCaskill? If that happens, it is most likely the case the we are also taking about President Mitt Romney. Matthews may have to be placed on suicide watch. Todd Akin has made a remarkable comeback and is polling within the margin of error now. From KMOV:
A new poll shows the Missouri Senate race is too close to predict a winner.
The News 4, St. Louis Post-Dispatch and Kansas City Star poll shows Senator Claire McCaskill with a 2 percent lead over Congressman Todd Akin, at 45 and 43 percent, respectively.
With a margin of error at plus or minus four points, and eight percent still undecided, the two remain in a statistical dead heat.
The poll, conducted by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research, surveyed 625 registered Missouri voters via telephone.
A few interesting numbers from the poll:
- McCaskill leads Akin 53 percent to 35 percent among voters age 18-34.
- Akin leads McCaskill 42 percent to 36 percent among independents who have made up their minds.
- Akin’s comments on rape were rated “Very Important” or “Somewhat Important” by 53 percent of voters, and “Not Too Important” or “Not At All Important” by 44 percent of voters.
- Economy & Jobs was rated the most important factor for 42 percent of voters, compared to Healthcare & Medicine (21 percent), Religious & Social Issues (11 percent), Women’s Issues (10 percent), party affililation (8 percent), and National Security & Terrorism (4 percent).
