Family Research Council poll shows Todd Akin leading McCaskill

A new poll by the Family Research Council, admittedly not exactly an unbiased source, shows Congressman Todd Akin is leading incumbent Claire McCaskill in the U. S. Senate race:

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.)
