A new Joe Donnelly commissioned internal poll is out.   A Global Strategy Poll that surveyed 600 likely voters found that Donnelly now has a 9-point lead over Richard Mourdock 47-38(and a seven-point lead when Libertarian Andrew Horning is included 43-36-9)

The full polling memo is in that story

Further good news in this poll:

Mourdock’s personal image has taken a beating, with his unfavorable rating rising 9 points in the past 10 days to 49 percent. Among undecided voters in the Donnelly poll, only 8 percent have a favorable view of Mourdock while 46 percent view him unfavorably.
Mourdock also has an internal out saying that he has a 1 point edge over Donnelly(and Horning only gets 4% of the vote).  

The Howey/DePauw poll which will give an independent look at the Indiana Senate race is going to come out later this week, but I expect that it will to at least some degree confirm that Mourdock is tanking and Donnelly is surging.

There are 6 days left until Indiana lets its vote be heard.   Joe Donnelly will stand up for Indiana.   Richard Mourdock will only stand up for the Tea Party.   I hope that Hoosiers will stand with those who stand with them.


Is the Donnelly surge real?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
