According to a recent poll commissioned by the Evansville Courier Press, John Hostettler trails challenger Brad Ellsworth by 15%. More surprising than the margin is the low, low support Hostettler apparently has — The poll showed Ellsworth with 47.4% support — decent, but not a huge number. However, the poll showed Hostettler with 31.8%. This is among respondents who were comprised of 32.7% Republicans, 33.5% Democrats, and the remainder unaffiliated with either major party.
This poll smells like an outlier merely because of the huge margin and large percentage of undecideds. Guess we’ll wait and see.
