Polls: Richard Mourdock closing on Dick Lugar

Politico: Two polls: Mourdock within 6 of Lugar:
Richard Mourdock has closed within single digits of Sen. Dick Lugar in the Indiana GOP Senate primary race, according to a pair of polls commissioned by groups seeking to oust the six-term incumbent. 
Both polls -- one paid for by Citizens United, the other by Rep. Joe Donnelly's campaign -- produced the same result: Lugar ahead by just 6 points, 45 percent to 39 percent.
In light of the recent news that Dick Lugar supported a 1993 effort to implement an individual healthcare mandate, I expect Lugar's poll numbers to erode further.
