(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) - A new poll shows John Gregg is drawing closer to Mike Pence in the race for Indiana governor, just days ahead of the November 6 election.
On Wednesday, Gregg’s campaign released an internal poll which shows him trailing Pence just 47 percent to 44 percent. That is within the poll’s +/- 3.32 percent margin of error.
The same poll, conducted by Clarity Campaigns, had Gregg down 18 points back in August and six points behind just a week ago.
The sample reflected Indiana's political makeup as 46-percent of respondents identified themselves as Republican, 39-percent as Democrat and 16-percent independent.
"Our momentum continues, as Congressman Pence is seeing his lead slip away," said Rebecca Pearcey, Gregg for Governor Campaign Manager. "This poll shows what we have known all along: when Hoosiers knows about John's plans for Indiana, they support him. When they learn about Mike Pence's extreme stances on issues that affect women and families, the less likely they are to support him."
Libertarian Rupert Boneham will also appear on the ballot. If the election is as close as Gregg's poll indicates, the amount of support given to Boneham could swing the election either way.
Both Gregg and Pence will campaign in Dearborn County on Thursday. Pence hosts a rally to support State Rep. Randy Frye at the Dillsboro Civic Center beginning at 11:00 a.m.
Gregg’s Workhorse Tour will stop at the Brickyard Café on Walnut Street in Lawrenceburg at 1:30 p.m.
Both events are free and open to the public.
