There are quite a few polls to report on this afternoon.
Our colleagues at the Mike Downs Center for Indiana Politics teamed up with Survey Monkey showing a very close race for the U.S. Senate. Democrat incumbent Joe Donnelly leads Republican challenger Mike Braun by one point. Libertarian Lucy Brenton got eight percent and 11 percent were undecided. The poll of 816 LV had a margin of error of 4.6 percent.
Meanwhile, the Braun campaign has unveiled their internal polls, showing Braun with a lead of four points over Donnelly, 44-40. Brenton had seven percent and five percent were undecided. The survey was of 800 likely voters. The margin of error was not released.
A poll released last week by Vox Populi polling of more than 780 LV gave Donnelly a 10-point lead (55-45) when leans and likely were counted together. Its margin of error was 3.5 percent.
And Congressman Jim Banks (CD-3) polling is giving him a 60-32 lead over challenger Courtney Tritch. Nine percent were undecided. The margin of was 4.9 percent and was conducted October 18-20.
Indy Politics will be releasing its polls over the next three days. We asked about the U.S. Senate race, Secretary of State and the Attorney General’s approval ratings just to mention a few.
