According to Rasmussen, Dan Coats’s chances of being the next senator from Indiana are . . . healthy:
Newly chosen Republican nominee Dan Coats earns 51% support while his Democratic rival Brad Ellsworth’s attracts 36% in the first Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of the Indiana Senate race following Tuesday’s GOP Primary.
Six percent (6%) of likely voters in the state favor some other candidate. Eight percent (8%) remain undecided.
When I say “healthy,” it’s deliberate:
Ellsworth voted in favor of the recently-passed national health care plan, but 59% of Indiana voters favor repeal of that plan. The Indiana finding includes 48% who Strongly Favor repeal. Thirty-eight percent (38%) oppose repeal, with 26% who Strongly Oppose it. Those figures are similar to the national average.
