McCaskill Has Massive Lead Over Akin in Latest Rasmussen Poll

Robin Marty

The Democratic senator is up 10 points in her race with the controversial congressman.

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.
