In attempt to argue that they are “closing the gap” the John Gregg campaign has released an internal poll showing them down only by six points against Republican Mike Pence. The poll of 701 likely voters has Pence leading Gregg 44 to 38. Libertarian Rupert Boneham is at 6, 12% are undecided. It has a margin of error of +/- 3.7%. Previous polls have had Pence with a double-digit lead.
The poll was taken before Richard Mourdock’s controversial remarks. It did not released any breakdowns of party identification nor geographic breakdowns. You can view what the Gregg camp released below.
An average off the polls taken in the Governor’s race since March has Pence with 47%, Gregg with 34.5%. 15% undecided. In no poll has Gregg cracked the 40% mark. Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jill Long Thompson got 40.1% of the vote in 2008.
Howey Politics and DePauw University are expected to released a poll the Friday before the election.
