Chris Dickson and Dan Coats
Dan Coats for Indiana
Just so you have a point of reference, my beloved Chicago Bears have a 3.3% chance of winning the Super Bowl. So if you have the choice between betting on Brad Ellsworth becoming a U.S. Senator or Jay Cutler winning a Super Bowl ring, put your money on No. 6.
Rasmussen has polled in this race 5 times. In April, the head-to-head numbers were 54%-33%. On August 10th, Ellsworth claimed just 29% of likely voters.
If Democrats can’t change the positions of Indiana voters on issues like healthcare and the economy that define this Senate race, there is little hope that Ellsworth can close a widening gap before the election.
