Race to the Bottom: Akin and Steelman "Basically Tied"

Even more data from Public Policy Polling: 

AKIN, STEELMAN BASICALLY TIED

There would be no clear favorite to start out if the principal Republican candidates for Senate in Missouri end up being Todd Akin and Sarah Steelman. Akin polls at 29% right now with Steelman at 28%, Ed Martin at 9%, and John Brunner at 6%. 

Akin is stronger with center and center right Republican voters. With moderates he leads Steelman 26-23 and with voters describing themselves as 'somewhat conservative' he has a 33-25 advantage. The largest segment of the GOP electorate though is those describing themselves as 'very conservative,' and Steelman earns the overall tie by holding a 32-28 advantage with that group...

Also, a whopping 38% of MO Republicans are still birthers, which isn't suprising when you consider the actions of Sen. Roy Blunt, House Majority Floor Leader [Speker] Tim Jones and other GOP leaders to propagate birther nonsense.
