Maybe a miracle. A reversal of New Hampshire. A week-long turnaround. All these thoughts come to mind as I scan this latest from Public Policy Polling. Not accurate in PA. But generally correct in other primaries. I want badly for Barack Obama to overcome what has been thrown at him by the Clintons and others. I do not want to vote for someone who owes her edge to Rush Limbaugh. Here is the PPP Poll.

Clinton shows solid lead in Indiana
Raleigh, N.C. – Hillary Clinton has an eight point lead in Indiana, according to the
newest survey by Public Policy Polling.
Clinton has 50% to 42% for Barack Obama in the state.
Clinton’s strength comes from her typical strong points. She leads 54-38 with white
voters, 54-39 with female voters, and 55-36 with voters over the age of 65.
Obama, as usual, does well with black voters (73-21) and voters 18-29 (50-40).
“Demographically Indiana should shape up pretty well for Hillary Clinton,” said Dean
Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling. “She may be able to win a strong enough
victory in the state to balance out the good margin Barack Obama is likely to win by in North Carolina. The question then becomes whether a tie on May 6th is enough to keep her in the race.”
Indiana has an open primary but it’s unclear who will benefit from that. Clinton leads 48-47 with the 14% of voters who described themselves as Republicans. Obama has the 52-37 edge with voters who described their affiliation as being ‘other’ than either Democratic or Republican. Those voters made up 12% of the survey.
PPP’s latest North Carolina survey found Barack Obama holding onto a 51-39 lead in the state. Final Presidential polls in both Indiana and North Carolina will be released next Monday.
PPP surveyed 1388 likely Democratic primary voters on April 26th and 27th. The
survey’s margin of error is +/- 2.6%. Other factors, such as refusal to be interviewed and weighting, may introduce additional error that is more difficult to quantify.
