NEW CBS POLL: BRAUN AHEAD WITH MOMENTUM

ZIONSVILLE, IN – A new poll released today by CBS News reaffirms that Mike Braun has all the momentum in Indiana’s race for the U.S. Senate. The poll, which shows Braun leading career politician Joe Donnelly 46% to 43%, comes on the heels of two polls last week showing Braun taking a strong lead with momentum in the final weeks of the race.

As CBS News reports:

“But Republican chances of holding on to their Senate majority – or even adding to it – are helped by the prospect of picking up a seat in Indiana, where Republican Mike Braun leads incumbent Democrat Joe Donnelly, 46 percent to 43 percent.”

Two other polls released last week had Braun in the lead with the momentum on his side.“But two recent polls tell a different story from what we’ve seen all race. Yesterday, the Braun campaign released an internal poll showing the Republican with a four-point lead, ahead of Donnelly 44-40 percent. Independent candidate Lucy Brenton had 7 percent support. This morning, an Indy Politics survey conducted by Mason Strategies also showed Braun ahead by four points, leading the incumbent 47-43 percent, while Brenton polled at only 3 percent.” (National Review , 10/23/2018)
