It's by a slightly lesser margin than earlier polls, but Republican Dan Coats is leading Democrat Brad Ellsworth 50 to 34 percent, according to Rasmussen. Ellsworth has never really been ahead since sitting Democratic Sen. Evan Bayh announced his retirement, but November is inching closer and his margins aren't picking up nearly enough. Ellsworth's "yes" vote on health care took his electoral chances down more than a few notches -- without it, the seat would probably have been much more competitive.
