Obama Leads by 3 Points in Indiana

According to a new Indianapolis Star-WTHR poll, Barack Obama now holds a 47% to 44% lead over John McCain in the Hoosier State. While the Star report doesn't say so, I think it's safe to say that this is the first time that a Democratic presidential contender has held a lead in Indiana since my cousin Lyndon did so back in the year that I was born (1964).

The poll shows a solid lead for Obama in Marion County, but claims McCain holds the remainder of the state. I question that aspect. I am 100% certain that Obama will handily carry Northwest Indiana, Fort Wayne, and Bloomington. I predict a rural vs. urban race that should allow Obama to eke out a close win in Indiana.

As the poll shows, Obama supporters are far more "fired up and ready to go" than McCain's, and Obama trumps his opponent in every important issue except experience. As McCain continues to show his "experience" as he has during this week, people will continue to fall behind Senator Obama.

Fired up! Ready to go! Volunteers are coming out of the woodwork but we need more! I think it is amazing that in a state that Bush carried by more than 20 points in 2004, Obama is showing a lead right now. And I bet none of our polls include people without landlines. Thanks for the reports. I don't often get to comment these days. Hope all is well with you and you family John.
