Rasmussen: Pence Leads Bayh by 3 Points
Run, Mike, run!

A new Rasmussen poll on the 2010 Indiana Senate race shows Republican congressman Mike Pence leading Democratic senator Evan Bayh 47 percent to 44 percent. Pence is the only Republican leading Bayh in the poll (though Bayh doesn't get more than 45 percent against any potential GOP challenger). The boss endorsed a Senate run by Pence last month.
Some have argued that it would be difficult for Pence to overcome Bayh's $12 million war chest--one of the largest among all senators--but as Patrick Ruffini and Mindy Finn note in a Washington Post op-ed, Scott Brown raised $12 million in two weeks online. Money does not stand between Pence and the U.S. Senate. This seat is his for the taking.
