The first poll is out since Congressman Todd Akin made his ludicrous comments about rape victims, and he has taken quite a hit in his senate race.
According to Rasmussen Reports, incumbent Senator Claire McCaskill now has a 10-point lead over her Republican rival, polling at 48 percent support to his 38 percent support.
Except Republican pressure on Akin to drop out to continue to mount as a result. Akin still has a few weeks where he can drop out of the race with a court order.
