Rasmussen Missouri: Obama Erases 6 Point Romney Lead… Now Leads Race 47-46

Barack Obama leads Mitt Romney in Missouri following Todd Akin’s controversial comments on rape. Less than one month ago Romney led Obama 50 – 44.

Akin went on with Charles Jaco on Sunday to talk about “legitimate rape” and the wonders of the female anatomy.


As the controversy over Republican Senate candidate Todd Akin’s “legitimate rape” comment continues, Mitt Romney’s lead in Missouri has vanished.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Missouri Voters finds President Obama with 47% support to Romney’s 46% . Three percent (3% ) favor some other candidate in the race, and three percent (3% ) more are undecided.

Claire McCaskill also leads the senate race now 48-38 against unelectable Todd Akin.

The latest word is that despite losing all national support and all funding Todd Akin will not step down.
