Mourdock/Lugar Indiana Senate Race Media Wrap

Here's the update on media stories on the Richard Mourdock/Dick Lugar Senate race one week away in Indiana:

  • A pro-labor group commissioned a poll by Magellan Strategies that shows Lugar clinging to a 2 point lead, 44% to 42%, but note that when an incumbent is below 50%, they are in serious trouble.  Read it here.
  • That same poll shows that Mourdock commands a 42% lead among self-proclaimed Tea Partiers and a four-point lead among voters calling themselves "conservative."
  • Mourdock received the endorsement of Grover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform after Lugar refused to sign the ATR pledge.
  • Mourdock received the endorsement of Michelle Bachmann.
So, the net is strong momentum in favor of Mourdock.  Only one week of Lugar left!
