Political Poll: Akin or McCaskill, Who Has Your Vote?
If the election were held today, which Missouri Senate candidate would you vote for?
We are now eight weeks—56 days—from Nov. 6 when the general election will take place.
Most of the attention has focused on the race to the White House, but there are other races voters will be deciding. A big one in Missouri? The battle between incumbent Democrat Claire McCaskill and Republican challenger Todd Akin for one of Missouri's two Senate seats.
Heading into the election, we're going to take the temperature of the St. Charles County electorate. We want to find out whom you're favoring. Last week, voters favored Mitt Romney 37-13. Does Akin lead McCaskill by a similar margin? Are his controversial comments still harming him, or have voters moved past that issue ?
What about McCaskill? Does she have an incumbents advantage ?
