A two page polling memo for Claire McCaskill’s (D) campaign is circulating. We got a copy (no, not from that national blog). The news is good for Claire McCaskill, not so good for Todd Akin (r).
The poll utilized a 600 sample of likely Missouri voters. Interviews were completed on September 30th. The margin of error is 3.5%.
The head to head numbers:
Claire McCaskill – 50%
Todd Akin – 41%
Other – 2%
Not sure – 7%
Gee, there’s a serious gender gap:
….For instance, women give her a 17-point margin when it comes to caring about people like them – and by a 21-point margin, they say that Akin is too extreme….
You don’t say?
Also, Democrats are supporting Claire 91% to 5%. On the other hand, republicans are only supporting Akin 19% to 15%. Independents support Claire McCaskill 51% to 28%.
Kinda restores your faith in Missouri voters, don’t it? If it holds.
