Democrats who thought Indiana became a possibility for Clinton may need to think again.

According to a newly released Monmouth University poll, “among Indiana voters who are likely to cast ballots in November’s presidential election or who have already voted early,” 50 percent currently support Trump and 39 percent back Clinton.

This is a seven-point leap for Trump over Clinton in the state in the span of two weeks and matches the 11-point lead held against the former secretary of state back in August.

Clinton’s unfavorable rating with voters in the Hoosier state is at 63 percent, while Trump is at 51 percent.

Additionally, Republican Rep. Todd Young has removed the 6 to 7 point lead once held by former senator Evan Bayh and is now neck and neck with the Democrat for retiring Republican Sen. Dan Coats’s seat in the upper chamber.

The Monmouth University Poll was conducted by telephone from October 27 to 30 with 402 Indiana residents likely to vote in the November election and has a margin of error of ± 4.9 percent.
