Suffolk Indiana Poll: Hillary Up By 6

The Suffolk University Poll for Indiana taken over the weekend has Hillary 49, Obama 43. Six percent are still undecided.

Suffolk says:

"Although the margin appears to be single digits at this point, the outcome will hinge on high turnouts in Marion and Lake counties, which are crucial for Obama."

....A considerably high 38 percent indicated they would vote for McCain, while 6 percent said they would vote for independent Ralph Nader, and an additional 11 percent were undecided.

"This 38 percent is one of several statistical signs that Republicans are meddling in the Democratic fray, knowing full well they will vote Republican come November," said Paleologos.

The margin of error is 4%.

Obama told reporters this morning in Indiana that "Every poll shows it is a dead heat."

    A potluck supper at a farmhouse in Kempton that had been built by one of Obama's great uncles (who had been a member of the Indiana legislature), on land that had once been bought by his great-great-great-great grandfather, had to be cancelled after the weather turned frigid and gale-force gusts defeated the campaign's efforts to set up tables. Instead, the Obama family had to settle for an uncomfortably chilly walk around the property.

    I fear that those same people will still be selling bits and pieces even with the gas tax holiday. I predict the gas price will go down about a week or so before the oil industry raises prices and uses the windfall tax as their excuse for doing so. I would like to see us spend the money on infrastucture to create a working public transit system and programs that would decrease our reliance on the oil industry.

    With the windfall tax, the money will continue to be available for infrastructure. So yeah, I totally agree with you.

    One of the reasons I thought it was a mistake for Obama to criticize Clinton and Mccain without putting an idea out there of his own is perception. People want to perceive the government is doing something when they are hurting economically, no matter how little that something might be. No one wants to hear "Sorry, you're out of luck."

    They are FREAKED OUT over the gas prices.  It has pushed some into seeking out free food sources.  Others who were already there......the waitresses, etc.......are really panicking.

    I don't know that this academic discussion that's going on makes a bit of difference to those voters.

    BTW, that includes low-income AA voters.

    They may be getting pushed a bit too much by his lack of identifying with poorer Americans.  Combine that with Wright?

    The potential is there.  What Kennedy and Pelosi did was trade the base working class for the progressive bloggers.

    Now, me?  I say that's a dumb bunnie move.

    Here's why.  I've learned one thing, for sure.  Progressive blogger world is much like the far right.  Rigid, demanding, and way too high-maintenance for any candidate to truly court.

    They are entirely too emotional.

    The base of the party?  Pretty relaxed folks.  The worst you have to do is stir them up to remind them to vote.

    This was a bad trade.

We need to keep playing that soundbite where he says he doesn't know much about the economy. THAT is going to resonate.

    Furthermore, we need to make sure that we remind folks how much this war is costing us monthly and link it i with the fact that he doesn't mind staying for 100 years. McCain HAS weak spots. The thing is that Left Blogistan needs to quit going after Clinton and go after HIM. The need to stop taking their eyes off of the ball and stop being so invested in the "cult of personality" politics.

    Blogs are the only thing we ave to fight the media narrative which is going to work in McCains favor if we on't take the ball and run with it. I fear our window of opportunity maynot have been what it once was due to the fact that so many have chosen to concentrate on Clinton.

    At least every dollar of the stimulus goes to citizens.

    Citizens will save pennies on the dollar of the gas tax, because pre-tax prices will go up.


    But (5.00 / 1) (#54)
    by cawaltz on Mon May 05, 2008 at 11:44:24 AM EST
    the money that goes to citizens will have to be paid back. Our government is running a deficit. That deficit is one of the reasons that the dollar does not have the bang it used to(which is why things cost more). By running the deficit up further with these "giveaways" we weaken the dollar further IMO.

    The "stimulus" is a ruse to keep the boat afloat until Bush leaves office. Our ecomonic problems are not going to be close to being solved if the government can't help create jobs that wil allow citizenry to support themselves or address he reason the dollar is not worth as much as it used to be.

    A good politician knows when to pander. That is why the Republicans agreed to the tax-rebate stimulus package and why they are working on legislation to help homeowners who are losing their homes. Nobody thinks it will make much difference, but people need to see their government working to help them.

    It's funny, because the government helps us in thousands of ways every day, from ensuring that we have phones in rural areas to making roads and cars safer so that we are less likely to die in a crash.  But people don't see those effects. They only see these silly political stunts.

    which someone said isn't reliable.  (Are any of them this year?)

    She's within 3, a statistical tie.  

    And here's their summary.

    Really interesting dynamics at play here. Clinton has increased her lead among white voters to 58% - very close to the 60% plus level needed to pull off a victory. She now leads among those who say they are Democrats but has started to trail among Unaffiliated voters, who are allowed to participate in Tuesday's election. Additionally, African-American voters are not quite as solid with Obama as they have been, at least based on previous exit polls. Clinton has remained in the upper teens (17%) of African-American support in our recent surveys. African-American turnout will be the key to this race. Our poll is based on a turnout model of 35% African-American vote. Anything under that number could give Clinton a shocking upset. But Indiana has become a true horserace that should concern the Clinton camp."

    Back ON Topic -

    How is it that NO ONE calls Obama on the things he says like this dead heat stuff???  I just don't get it.  My head is still reeling that so many "progressives" seem not to have noticed when he praised Reagan, said the '90's Rep. Party was the party of ideas; AND that he wants to return to the Foreign Policies of G.H.W. Bush (that is - Donald Rumsfeld!).  How is this possible??  So they really not pay ANY attention to the words coming out of his mouth unless they are an attack on Clinton???

    are not sausages.  No meat, just bread crumbs.  Awful stuff for someone from a Germanic city like mine, where we're best at wurst.  "All meat, no fillers" could be a winning campaign slogan here.

    attempted to reclassify the banger as a meat simulation.

    Sorta like Buhddist cooking in China.

    When I met her in person, I was just shocked at how beautiful and vital she looks, and wondered why that didn't come across on camera so much.  Now, I see it coming across in spades.

    Obama,  not so much.  Maybe by "dead heat" he meant that he looks like the walking dead and she looks like she's got all the heat?

    Maybe I should revise my KUSA numbers to reflect this.  If Bush taught us anything, it's that looking and acting like you are a winner more often than not persuades lots of folks that it's true.

    Hm...somebody should give Obama The Secret.  Maybe wait until June, though.

    has always reminded of a tent preacher, only "on" when he's got a huge crowd.

    Otherwise, that's one dour fellow.

    I had the chance to retire on April 30 but decided to wait and do it June 30 -- What a dumb decision.

    I could be home watching CNN if I'd only thought ahead!

    44% won't vote Dem in GE (none / 0) (#84)
    by wasabi on Mon May 05, 2008 at 01:43:06 PM EST
    Wow.  44% won't vote Dem in the GE if their candidate does not win in the primary.  I guess that is 44% split between the HRC and BHO supporters, but it still sounds bad.

    "In addition, slightly more voters said that Obama (35 percent) would be the next President, compared to 28 percent for Clinton and 25 percent for McCain."

    It appears that the % that envisions Clinton getting the nod is climbing.  Interesting.
