Congressman Akin is actually

holding onto a slender lead in the polls out in Missouri!

Does this mean Romney is gonna drop his crude attempts to oust Akin from the Senate Race and try to toady up to the embattled GOP Senatorial nominee?
It would be a signature Romney move to be sure...

As for Akin's polling position I can't for the life of me think that it'll last, his frankly infantile and ignorant remarks about rape are a good example of what Spiro Agnew used to call "Positive Polarization".
Possibly Akin might be holding his lead among men, especially independent conservative leaning married men, but their wives that is a different matter.
That is who I'd aim my pitch at if I was Clair McCaskill.
Akin has handed the democrats a very powerful wedge issue, something that peels off a important electoral cohort....No wonder the Flower of the GOP are scrambling to scuttle Akin's candidacy, the remember Agnew and "positive polarization" as well.
Meanwhile, Ghod Bless em', Akin is hanging tough and even trying to run to the right a bit, he remains the Gift That Keeps on Giving.
