Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan should be very worried that the state of Missouri may slip out of their hands in the presidential elections on November 6, thanks to Ryan’s buddy Rep. Todd Akin’s “legitimate rape rarely leads to pregnancy” remark, insulting every woman in this country. Well, it is starting to show in the Missouri polls that his remark does have consequences.
His Democratic opponent Sen. Claire McCaskill who he led by a narrow margin suddenly has a 10-point lead, according to Republican-leaning Rasmussen. McCaskill leads Akin 48 percent to 38 percent. The survey of 500 likely voters was conducted Aug. 22, and has a 4.5 percent margin of error. She has also taken the lead in the PollTracker Average, 46.3 percent to 40 percent.
This is a foreboding of things to come for the Republican Party and its extremist stance on women’s issues.
