Pat McMahon Contributor

Republican nominee Dan Coats continues to hold a commanding lead in Indiana’s U.S. Senate race.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Indiana finds Coats with a 50% to 29% lead over Democratic Congressman Brad Ellsworth. It’s Ellsworth’s poorest showing to date. Seven percent (7%) favor some other candidate in the race, but 14% remain undecided.

A month ago, Coats was ahead of Ellsworth 51% to 30%. Coats has earned 46% to 54% of the vote in matchups with Ellsworth since February. Ellsworth has picked up 30% to 36% of the vote in those same surveys, but his support has been trending down since May.
