Majority Want Akin to Drop Race

A new SurveyUSA poll in Missouri finds that 54%, including a majority of men and women, say Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) should quit the U.S. Senate race and allow another Republican to run in his place while 35% say Akin should continue his bid to unseat Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO).

Key findings: "A large majority, 76%, do not share Akin's views on rape and pregnancy. But it is important to note that 13% do share his views, including 16% of pro-life voters, 19% of conservatives and 24% of African Americans. Akin says that he mis-spoke. But 55% in Missouri don't buy it."

A poll last night found Akin still running neck-and-neck with McCaskill.
