Skip to comments.Poll: Lugar Trailing Mourdock By Five Points (Whoo Hoooooo)
Posted on 04/28/2012 5:27:22 AM PDT by LesbianThespianGymnasticMidget
Longtime Indiana Senator Dick Lugar is trailing state Treasurer Richard Mourdock by five points in the closely watched Republican primary, according to a new poll on behalf of Citizens United.
The survey shows Mourdock leading with 44 percent and Lugar at 39 percent, with nearly 17 percent of voters still undecided. Lugar supporters point out that Citizens United is backing Mourdock in the May 8 primary, however.
Both candidates have seen their favorable numbers plummet and the nastiness is expected to increase with less than two weeks left.
The Club for Growth has just reserved another $421,000 of TV time to batter Lugar, charging in a new spot that he is clinging to power, throwing mud.
Meanwhile, the pro-Lugar American Action Network is on the air with an ad attacking Mourdocks reckless mismanagement of state money as treasurer.
In recent days, the Lugar campaign has also launched a series of attacks against the Tea Party challenger, claiming Mourdock failed to report several owned properties while highlighting that he once supported the Fairness Doctrine.

Well said. Too many here seem to want to have a tantrum and take the ball home. We have to focus on advancing conservatives at every level of government. We especially need to focus on Senate majority and pushing as far right as possible to get these reforms through.
Lugar is the Poster Child for Term Limits.
I'll bet a $1,000 that you are full of crap and that when Mourdock wins in the primary, that the pubbies get 100% behind him.
Put up or shut up.
But I want the money in a escrow account, and I'll put up the same $ 1,000.
I am so tired of you whiners with big mouths and no balls.
Put up the money.
Blow it out your arse. I have good reason to think that after what many in the GOP-E did in 2010. Bitch at them instead.
So I take it that you mean that "how much you wanna bet really means blow it out your ass" in dirtyboi girlyman, talk.
All mouth, dirtyboi, all mouth.
Better than your mouth, busily kissing RINO backside.
But go ahead - nitpick on me while the GOP-E is up to their usual dirty tricks.
I reported the other day that the Young Guns Network, a group led by two former top aides to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, is spending $100,000 in the primary between Sen. Richard Lugar and state treasurer Richard Mourdock in a bid to protect the Indiana incumbent - and here's what some of that mail looks like.
A lit piece that the YG Network dropped focuses, as they'd said it would, on energy policy - but it is targeted to non-Republicans, as it reminds voters that Indiana's GOP primary is an open one in which Democrats and independents can vote. "Indiana does not have party registration," the mail piece says over a picture of a smiling child giving a thumbs-up sign. "You simply need to show up at your polling location on May 8, 2012 to vote for Senator Dick Lugar in the Republican Primary."
In case anyone didn't get the point, the piece adds, "You can vote in the May 8th Republican Primary election! The May 8th Election is open to all voters."
At other points ,the piece says Lugar, who is seen as facing an uphill battle against the conservative-backed insurgent, "has always represented mainstream Indiana values."
BTW, I heard that Anna Little is running again in NJ-06. The district was made a few points more conservative and Republican, so maybe she can beat Pallone this time.
