Mourdock Poll Says He Is Still Tied After Comment About Rape

Republican nominee Richard Mourdock released an internal poll Friday in the Indiana Senate race, claiming it is still tied and he has a path to victory in the wake of his controversial statement about rape at a debate earlier in the week.

The poll shows Mourdock and Democratic Rep. Joe Donnelly at 44 percent each, with Libertarian candidate Andrew Horning at 6 percent. It was conducted by GOP polling firm McLaughlin and Associates. The survey of 600 likely voters was held Oct. 24 and 25, entirely after the debate, and has a 4 percent margin of error.

Also important, the poll says that Mitt Romney leads President Obama in Indiana by a very strong margin, 55 percent to 41 percent.

The PollTracker Average currently shows Donnelly with a narrow edge, 42.6 percent to 40.9 percent.
