INDIANAPOLIS - Forty-one percent of Hoosiers say they approve of Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-IN), while 34 percent disapprove, according to a new poll from Morning Consult.
While those numbers mean Donnelly enjoys better approval ratings than some of his fellow incumbent Senators up for re-election this year, they also show some troubling signs for the first-term incumbent.
Only 31 percent of Hoosiers polled say Donnelly deserves another term, while 44 percent say it's time for someone new.
Donnelly is running against former State Rep. Mike Braun, who defeated two sitting members of Congress in a contentious Republican primary.
NEW: Poll from @MorningConsult shows @SenDonnelly approval rating at 41/34. Doing better than some incumbents in that regard, however, just 31% of Hoosiers polled say he deserves re-election, while 44% say time for someone new. #INfocus #INsen pic.twitter.com/AXpjybkOon
