Mourdock Leads Lugar In New Club For Growth PollLink to Article: http://www.clubforgrowth.org/perm/pr/?postID=958
69% of Hoosier Republicans say “Time for a Change”
Washington, DC – The Club for Growth today released the results of a poll it conducted among Republican Primary voters in Indiana. In the race for U.S. Senate, Hoosier Republicans favor State Treasurer Richard Mourdock over Senator Richard Lugar in the Republican Primary by a narrow two percentage points, 34% to 32%.
“An incumbent who sits at 32% in his own party’s primary, and trails a much less known challenger, is in a world of trouble,” said Club for Growth President Chris Chocola. “Senator Lugar is a very decent man, but it’s clear from the poll that after 35 years, Hoosier Republicans are eager for a more conservative alternative.”
The poll was conducted by the Republican polling firm Basswood Research, on July 23-24, 2011. The sample contained 500 likely Republican primary voters, with a margin of error of +/-4.4%.
