    And McCaskill/Akin two-party by district:
    MO   58.4%    41.6%
    1st    86.6%    13.4%
    2nd    53.3%    46.7%
    3rd    50.4%    49.6%
    4th    52.9%    47.1%
    5th    71.0%    29.0%
    6th    54.2%    45.8%
    7th    45.0%    55.0%
    8th    49.2%    50.8%

    And just for laughs, when I estimated it I still found that yes, McCaskill did win even Akin's conservative old 2nd district by 51.8% to 48.2%, while Obama lost it by an esimated 39.9% to 60.1%.

    So I highly doubt we're winning the 8th special election given that it was R+8 compared to the whole state, which itself is fairly conservative federally. However, it looks like Nixon and Carnahan won it in 2008 and even Montee won it in 2006, but it voted straight ticket Republican in 2012 just barely.
