Indianapolis – It’s been a long time since Indiana was at play during a presidential election but the latest Indianapolis Star-WTHR poll is showing just that.
The presidential race numbers indicate a real race shaping up in Indiana: 44 percent of likely voters polled support Republican John McCain, 47 percent support Barack Obama with 6 percent not sure.
Obama’s support comes mainly in metro areas from women, the young and minorities.
I doubt Obama will win Indiana. No Democratic presidential has won the state since Johnson beat Goldwater in 1964. This Indy Star/WTHR poll has Obama ahead by three points in the state.
Obama up by three.
In the words of Indiana’s GOP chair:
“I don’t know that it is. In the end it’s competency. It’s policy,” said Murray Clark, State GOP chairman.
Indeed. Murray, in the end it certainly is about competency and policy. Barack Obama has the right policies to help Hoosier families and has demonstrated his competency through the way he has run his campaign.
I need to get to work to help Obama carry Indiana.
iSi, se puede!
