Rasmussen Poll Puts Pence Ahead Of Bayh
U.S. Rep. Mike Pence receives more encouragement to enter the U.S. Senate race in Indiana against Sen. Evan Bayh. Rasmussen Reports has just released a new poll showing Pence beating Bayh by a 47% to 44%, 3-point margin. In a match-up with former U.S. Rep. John Hostettler, Bayh has a small three point lead of 44% to 41%. State Sen. Marlin Stutzman trails Bayh by 12 points, 45% to 33%. The fact that Bayh is polling below 50% this early in the race suggests he is highly vulnerable in what could turn out to be a watershed election for Republicans.
