If the race for U.S. Senate were held today in Missouri, Todd Akin would win over Claire McCaskill 51 to 40-percent.  Jonathan Dine captured 4-percent of the vote. Akin is doing considerably better in female voters 35 and older. Women prefer Akin 53 to 39.  He’s also within five points of McCaskill in the Democratic stronghold of St. Louis.
