Former Sen. Evan Bayh (D) leads by seven points in the latest Indiana Senate race poll by Monmouth University.

The Indiana race is shaping up as a key contest in Democratic efforts to win a Senate majority.

In the survey of likely Indiana voters, Bayh, also a former Indiana governor, led Rep. Todd Young (R) 48-41, with Libertarian candidate Lucy Brenton polling at 4 percent.

Monmouth has not previously polled this race, but a July poll by Democrat-leaning pollster Garin-Hart-Yang Research Group showed Bayh ahead by 21 points, 54-33.

The Monmouth poll, conducted Aug. 13-16, surveyed 403 likely Indiana voters over the phone with a margin of error of plus or minus 4.9 percent.
