Less than one week after his Democratic opponent John Gregg released a poll showing Republican Gubernatorial candidate Mike Pence with only a six-point lead, the Pence campaign says its internals show them with a nine-point lead going into the Election.
The four night tracking poll of more than 1200 voters shows Pence leading 47-36 over Gregg. Libertarian Rupert Boneham has been polling at about 5 percent. 10 percent of voters say they are undecided.
The poll was conducted October 25-28 and sampled about 300 likely voters each night. The aggregate margin of error for the poll for all four nights was +/- 2.8%.
The poll taken on October 28 showed Pence with a 48-36 lead. The Pence camp also says they were leading among women, 50-33 and were competitive with independent voters: Gregg - 36, Pence - 31, Undecided - 22.
The Pence campaign says the poll took into account geography as well as voter demographics.
The Gregg poll showed Pence leading 44-38. A poll was also done on behalf of the Libertarian Party of Indiana. It surveyed only Marion County residents. It showed Pence with a 5-point lead over Gregg and Boneham was in double digits.
A poll by Howey Politics and DePauw University will be out this Friday.
