Mourdock Opens Ten-Point Lead

by Brian Bolduc

Howey Politics Indiana reports that Richard Mourdock has opened a ten-point lead over Senator Dick Lugar:

A Howey/DePauw Indiana Battle-ground Poll conducted Monday and Tuesday of this week shows that Lugar is trailing Indiana Treasurer Richard Mourdock 48-38% in the Republican Senate primary.

That    head-to-head figure includes so-called “leaners,” who could conceivably change their minds in the final 72 hours of the campaign. Without the leans, Mourdockstill leads 43-35%. Based on this survey data, Howey Politics Indiana is moving the Senate race into a “Likely Mourdock” category.
