Polls: Obama and Clinton Very Close in Indiana

Three days after Sen. Hillary Clinton’s win in Pennsylvania, a new CNN “poll of polls” shows a dead heat in Indiana ahead of the May 6 primary, the next crucial battleground that could decide the Democratic presidential nomination.

Sen. Barack Obama is tied with Clinton at 45 percent, with 10 percent unsure, according to the Indiana Democratic poll, an average of campaign surveys.The poll of polls consists of three surveys: Research 2000 (April 23-24), ARG (April 23-24), and The Indianapolis Star (April 20-23). All polls include interviews conducted after the Pennsylvania primary.

The Research 2000 poll released Friday showed Obama leading Clinton by 1 percentage point, 48 percent to 47 percent. The candidates are statistically tied given the poll’s margin of error of plus or minus 5 percent.

The survey also shows both candidates are strong with constituencies that backed them in other states: Clinton easily wins among senior citizens and women, while Obama has the advantage with young voters.
