Good riddance to bad rubbish

In what is likely to be the final live-caller public poll ahead of Tuesday's Indiana Senate Republican primary, state Treasurer Richard Mourdock has opened up a ten point lead over Sen. Richard Lugar, whose 35-year Senate career is in serious jeopardy.
A Howey/DePauw Indiana Battleground Poll conducted by Democratic and Republican pollsters on Monday and Tuesday of this week shows Mourdock leading Lugar 48 percent to 38 percent.
The previous Howey/DePauw survey, which was conducted from March 26-28, had Lugar leading Mourdock 42 percent to 35 percent. In the weeks since that survey was taken, outside groups have come to the aid of both candidates, spending big bucks on TV ad buys and mail drops.
Allied outside groups of both candidates have released polls during the last two weeks showing a single-digit race. But the Howey/DePauw polls have been the only reliable live-caller surveys that have not been conducted for one of the candidates or on behalf of an allied group.
