Todd Akin ignores first deadline to drop out of Missouri race. Now what? - Yahoo! News:
"A Public Policy Polling survey of Missouri voters taken on Monday and released Tuesday could also encourage Akin. It found him leading McCaskill 44 to 43 percent. Though another poll, by SurveyUSA, showed that 54 percent of Missourians want Akin to step aside."
If he wants to be a U. S. Senator, Akin should stay in. If 2000 and 2004 proved anything, it is that being an idiot is no impediment to political success.
