Romney's MO

The Show Me state has been in the news this week after U.S. Senate candidate Rep. Todd Akin showed his ignorance in a remark about rape and pregnancy. And despite calls from Romney for Akin to drop his bid, Missouri is standing behind its man—and the Republican presidential nominee. In a Public Policy Polling survey released Aug. 23, Romney leads Obama in the state by 52-42 percent.
