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.  37-13. Does Akin lead McCaskill by a similar margin? Are  still harming him, or have ?

What about McCaskill? Does she have an incumbents advantage

It's all this stupid bickering that has our country in this mess. Whoever does get elected needs to be flexible to some degree to make change happen. I dont care if your Republican, Democrat, Liberal........whatever!

I disagree curly. Our Founding Fathers felt that allowing people of differing viewpoints to do their bickering over the direction of the country in the public square. That's "the political process" they *fought* for. I personally think that it was the "change" from our country's Judeo Christian moral foundation that has gotten "our country in this mess". For instance, we've outlawed posting the 10 Commandments on the walls of schools & public buildings. A poster saying "Thou shalt not kill" has been banished from the public square. But we've had to replace them with metal detectors to try and catch as many mass murderers as we can at the doors. Has that change really been in our best interest?

"Lady, you are certifiable." You said it yourself.....don't judge....yet you feel you have the right to do so? Sounds rather hypocritical to me.

There's scripture all over Washington DC. It's found in and on the Capitol Building, the Jefferson Memorial, the Washington Memorial, the Supreme Court, the Library of Congress; both houses of Congress as well as the Supreme Court open their sessions with prayer; while this may no longer be a nation of believers, our nation was founded by people who believed in God and who acknowledged Him in their lives. To deny this and to try to cut the mention of God out of our lives is asking for trouble. We wll pay the consequences for it. When we started, in the late 60s and 70s, trying to replace God with "values" and secular humanism, things started falling apart, and it's gone downhill since then. We've lost our focus and we're paying the price.
