Public Policy Polling: Hillary Leads By 5 In Indiana
Obama cut into her lead, but not enough to fully close the gap. Still, he went from 8 points down to 5, making the contest Clinton/Obama, 51/46.
Clinton led a similar poll last week 50-42. The main movement since then comes from Obama shoring up his support with black voters. Last week he led 73-21 with them, now the tally is 81-13.
Indianaâ€™s open primary is working to Obamaâ€™s benefit. While he has a ten point deficit with voters who described themselves as Democrats, he leads 48-45 with Republicans and 52-39 with voters who donâ€™t identify with either political party.
â€œHillary Clinton is probably going to win Indiana,â€ said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling. â€œBut more than likely it will be by a smaller margin than the one Obama wins by in North Carolina, which means the nomination will be just two states closer to Obamaâ€™s hands. Clinton is not likely to make it out of the day with a net gain in delegates.â€
Will Public Policy Polling redeem themselves from an awful showing in Pennsylvania?
Will Hillary be able to pull out a win in Indiana?
