McCaskill Maintains Lead in Missouri

A new Public Policy Polling survey in Missouri finds Sen. Claire McCaskill (D) leads Rep. Todd Akin (R) in the U.S. Senate race, 46% to 40%, with Libertarian Jonathan Dine at 6%.

Key finding: "There were a lot of reasons to think this race might shift back toward Todd Akin as the furor over his controversial comments in August died down. But his image has actually just continued to get worse as the election approaches. 31% of voters now say they have a favorable opinion of him to 57% with a negative one. It was a 33/55 spread earlier this month."
