US Rep. Todd Rokita (R-Brownsburg/Lafayette) released the results of his early January GS Strategy Group poll, the second such survey conducted for his campaign. According to the study (1/6-9; 500 IN likely GOP primary voters), Mr. Rokita has expanded his advantage over fellow Rep. Luke Messer (R-Greensburg/Muncie) and former state Rep. Mike Braun (R-Jasper). According to the results, the western state Congressman leads his opponents, 24-9-9%.
The previous GS Strategy poll, released in July, gave Rokita a 20-14-1% lead over Rep. Messer and Mr. Braun. In this poll, both Rokita and Braun gained strength while Messer receded based upon their previous totals. Mr. Braun has been advertising heavily to increase his name identification and support base. The Indiana primary is May 8th. The winner faces first-term Sen. Joe Donnelly (D) in the November election.
