A few days after Akin's original statements, a representative of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch was interviewed on FoxNews. He said that Missouri has been trending Republican for the last decade and that 39-40% of Missouri voters are born-again Christians. He, in no way, presented the scenario in Missouri as Rove did. I am not surprised to see your poll with Akin in the lead. That said, it wouldn't hurt to be contributing to Akin's campaign if McCaskill is to be removed. Rove had said some time ago that he would pull his group's ads.
