Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., leads GOP Rep. Todd Akin by 14 points in a new internal poll conducted for her campaign.

The poll, conducted by Kiley and Company, shows McCaskill with 52 percent support to Akin’s 38 percent. It’s an increase from her lead in their previous poll, conducted in late September, which showed the senator leading her embattled opponent 50 percent to 41 percent….

….The poll, conducted Oct. 14-15, surveyed 601 likely voters, for a margin of error of plus-or-minus 3.5 percentage points.

Well, well, well….
