Akin Allies: No Really, We're Fine

Politico: "A survey commissioned by the Family Research Council – the prominent social conservative group standing with Akin – and shared with POLITICO found that Akin now pulls 45 percent support to McCaskill’s 42 percent. That’s not to say Akin hasn’t sustained damage: his personal image is weak, with 44 percent of voters having a favorable impression of him and 50 percent having an unfavorable impression. But he still leads McCaskill by 10 points among independent voters and in the conservative-leaning state, Akin wins about the same percentage of Republicans (78 percent) that McCaskill wins among Democrats (82 percent.)" 

You may remember that it was a Family Research Council podcast on which Todd Akin declared that "the heart of liberalism really is a hatred for God and a belief that government should replace God."
