Richard Mourdock: Rape remark got me votes

If you were looking for Senate candidate Richard Mourdock, an Indiana Republican, to slowly step away from his controversial comments on rape and pregnancy, keep waiting. Mourdock earned seemingly unwanted attention earlier this week when he said that pregnancies as a result of rape are "something God intended to happen." But Mourdock, asked at a campaign stop Thursday whether he believes the controversy has gained votes for his campaign, said, "I know we did." Mourdock also picked up the support today of Republican senators John McCain of Arizona and Mitch McConnell, Senate Minority Leader, from Kentucky.

Would you be more or less likely to vote for Richard Mourdock?
