Lugar trails Mourdock in new poll

INDIANAPOLIS -- Days before the Indiana Primary, a new political poll shows that long-time senator Dick Lugar is trailing by double digits.

According to the Indiana Battleground poll, released this week, Indiana Treasurer Richard Mourdock leads Lugar 48 to 38 percent.

Lugar is seeking his seventh term.

Here's what he said when asked about the numbers.

"My reaction is a rigorous 'Get out to vote! We believe that we have the majority support in this state and that we are going to win," said Sen. Richard Lugar.

A survey done in March showed Lugar with a seven point lead.

Mourdock claims Lugar is out of touch with voters and needs to make way for a true conservative.
