A poll by Monmouth University of Hoosier voters shows Donald Trump and Evan Bayh leading in their respective races, while the contest for Governor is a virtual tie.
The poll of 403 likely voters showed Trump leading Hillary Clinton 47-36. Libertarian Gary Johnson was at 10 percent and five percent were undecided.
In the race for the U.S. Senate, Bayh led Republican challenger Todd Young 48-41, which is a far cry from the 21-point lead a Democratic Senate Campaign poll conducted last month.
“More and more Hoosiers are beginning to realize Evan Bayh has changed,” said Young spokesman Jay Kenworthy. “He left Indiana and spent the last six years making millions to help special interests become more entrenched in Washington, and Hoosiers are ready to send a Marine like Todd Young to the Senate.”
In the race for Governor, Republican Eric Holcomb leads Democrat John Gregg, 42-41. Four percent supported Libertarian Rex Bell and 13 percent were undecided.
Indiana Democratic Party Spokesman Drew Anderson said because the poll over sampled Republicans b 13 points, it shows Gregg and Young were in much better shape.
The poll was conducted Saturday through Tuesday and has a margin of error of 4.9 percent.
