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.
