Republicans and their zany three-way tie primaries.

IMO: 1) Brunner 2) Steelman ... 3) Akin.

I'll probably be wrong, but I've getting the gut feeling that Akin pulls it out. We'll see tommorrow.

Same reason Fischer did, the other 2 pummelled each other on the airwaves. Difference is that Akin is the weakest candidate in this field and Fischer wasn't.

Akin is 65. Brunner isn't a spring chicken either. Originally I supported Steelman in this race, but seeing how they're all pretty conservative, I'll go with the most electable, which I believe is Brunner.

I also believe Brunner will narrowly edge out Akin on election day, as this poll indicates.

Also indicates that Akin has late momentum. We'll see how this turns out but like WI next week it'll be a long night.

Quick question: Did McCaskill's ads calling Akin "too conservative" help him surge with conservative Republicans? It could be an interesting ploy as a last-ditch effort to save her seat.

Perhaps, but I think "above the fray" will have a lot more to do with it if he wins. Right now I'd put Akin as a slight favorite since per PPP he appears to have momentum. McCaskill will still lose regardless but it'll take longer with Akin as the nominee.

McCaskill is trying to do what Reid did 2 years ago- help pick a weak opponent. Akin's a Berg, not an Angle, so wishful thinking on her part.

Junk poll!

Well, interestingly, Mason-Dixon which showed McCaskill down by about 10 was the biggest junk poll out there ... Tongue
