Political Poll: Does Akin or McCaskill Have Your Vote
If the election were held today, which Missouri Senate candidate would you vote for?
A week from today the election season will all be over.
All the ads, yard signs and campaigning will be done. In Missouri, one of the most contested, and publicized races, will be finished. Voters will finally get to decide who takes one of Missouri's two seats in the United States Senate.
Incumbent Claire McCaskill, a Democrat, is battling with Republican Todd Akin in a tight race. Patch readers, however, haven't seen the race as that close.
Twice readers have been asked who they favored in the race and both times Akin came out on top. In the first poll, Akin topped McCaskill with 71 percent of the votes (88 total). McCaskill picked up only 35 votes (28 percent).
In round No. 2, Akin's percentage dropped, but he still came out ahead. He had 62 percent (32 votes) compared to McCaskill's 37 percent (19 votes).
Just one month away from the big day, has your mind changed? Is Akin still the favorite? Will McCaskill pull it out?
