This makes the chance of a Republican Senate even more remote.

A new Indiana Battleground Poll, conducted for Howey Politics Indiana and DePauw University, found Donnelly [pictured left] up 47-36 percent, with Libertarian candidate Andrew Horning pulling 6 percent of the vote. Donnelly’s 11-point lead is a huge increase from the 2-point advantage that the same poll showed him holding in September.

The results strongly suggest that Mourdock’s support has eroded after his controversial remarks last week that God intended for pregnancies to occur after rape. The GOP has been spending big to save his candidacy, with outside groups pouring in about $4 million in just the last week alone.
