Polls: Clinton, Obama tied in Indiana

Clinton and Obama are tied in Indiana.
Clinton and Obama are tied in Indiana.

(CNN) – Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are dead-even in the crucial primary state of Indiana, according to a new CNN "poll of polls."

In an average of several recent polls, the two candidates each draw 47 percent of likely Democratic voters in the Hoosier State, while 6 percent remain undecided.

The new poll of polls includes a just released Howey-Gauge survey that shows Obama ahead of Clinton by two points, 47-45 percent. That difference is well within the poll’s 4 point margin of error.

A CNN average of recent Indiana polls released late last week also showed a dead heat between Clinton and Obama, though today's poll of polls is the first comprised entirely of surveys conducted after the New York senator's Pennsylvania win.

Some Clinton advisers have said Clinton must win Indiana to continue her presidential bid.

    Please check out the L.A. Superior Court pending civil case against the CLINTONS for receiving illegal campaign contributions for Hillary's Senate seat campaign. You can find the EXPLICIT details of how the Clintons operate with their chronies – sound familiar? VERY SCARY INDEED!!!

    REV WRIGHT HAS BEEN SPEAKING WITH HILLARYCAMPAIGN SUPPORTERS AND THEY SUGGESTED THAT HE SPEAK TO THE MEDIA. ABOUT OBAMA. BECAUSE HILLARY DON'T WANT ANYONE TO KNOW THAT SHE GOT HER STRENGTH AND SUPPORT TO STAY IN HER MARRIAGE BY PRAYING WITH REV. WRIGHT . THE MEDIA HAS NOT REPORTED REV. WRIGHT AT THE PRAY BREAKFAST AT THE WHITE HOUSE.
    GO HILLARY AND REV. WRIGHT 2008!!!!!! THAT IS HISTORY

    I know Clinton will finally go ahead in the polls before next Tuesday. She is a strong woman will be the best candidate for president.

    Anyway, as I heard on CNN tonight that Obama's campaign people said that Obama is bored with primaries so maybe he should drop out of the race. What he is saying is that you voters are boring him and he just wants to get it over and done with. What you voters should do then is not vote for him so that he could get back to his normal life so that he will no longer be bored.

    Stop saying Hillary must win. That tends to make her do stupid things to get ahead.

    Hillary Clinton is committing FRATRICIDE. She is clearly hell-bent on "taking the whole ship down" – Obama and the Democratic party. If she can't have it, nobody can. Well, Ms. Clinton – You're not going to get it in 2012 either! Put that in your pipe and smoke it!!

    AND this is news why?

    Why wasn't there any coverage on Gov. Rendell's praising Louis Farrakahn at a speaking engagement where Gov. Rendell himself INVITED HIM!!

    Check out the U-Tube clips.

    Why isn't this reported on I wonder? They slam Rev. Wright for bringing his name up, but they don't slam Gov. Rendell for "praising" this man. What a biggoted racists double-standard!!!

    So WHAT else is new?

    Sen. Clinton also does not mention the FACT that her own PASTOR supports Rev. Wright and his church. Funny that, no reporting there either.

    I am relatively new to understand American political process.
    I was initially thrilled by the Openess, The Campaign, The New Wave and Good Media. Is it correct to runaway from the Clintons “ Politics not of a Developed Nation” and to not see and watch analysis of “Media mud slinging on politics of Obama era”.

    So it is clear the winners are Clintons and Media. Now, it is safe to go back to Pre-Obama era?
    My answers to above is whopping “YES” because I am a good Samaritan of GREAT America.

    I used to support Obama. I've now had it with all the things coming out about him. And, he's weak. Clinton 2008 and 2012! She is the best man for the job.

    Why does the media continue to ignore Hillary is being sued in a $1.2Million Campaign Fraud Law suit in California.?

    Peter Paul VS Clinton, Et Al...

    Secret Campaign Finace?
    Clinton is the largest campaign Fraud & Perjury perpetrator in History. $2Million was bilked from Peter Paul in 2000.
    Paul v.s. Clinton
    Don't stick your head in the sand.
    The first official shot across the bow has been fired. Only it wasn't Hillary Clinton doing the shooting. No, this volley is being fired by Peter Paul, and it's a doozy.
    I invite you to view the trailer for the documentary in production, INDICTING HILLARY, featuring famed prosecutor and House Impeachment Manager Dave Schippers supporting Peter Paul's efforts to hold Hillary accountable for the campaign finance fraud that her campaign has now admitted to the FEC that it committed when it filed three false FEC reports to hide more than $720,000 of the $1.2 million plus contributions made by Paul to Hillary's Senate campaign in 2000.
    Witness what Schippers had to say, and see the difference in the allegations presented by Paul himself in 2006 compared with ABC 20/20 Brian Ross' portrayal of Paul and his allegations in 2001.
    The trial of Hillary finance director David Rosen in May, 2005, and the December 13, 2005, negotiated settlement of Hillarys campaign treasurer Andrew Grossman, admitting to the FEC his culpability for the actions criminally charged against his subordinate Rosen, have completely validated and vindicated the claims Paul has made in his landmark civil fraud suit, Paul v Clinton et al, and in his demand letter to Hillary Clinton in June, 2001.as expressed by Dick Morris on Sean Hannity's show in January, 2006.

  21. STOP THE MADDNESS!!!!

    The only way Hillary can stay in this race is with the media's help let alone side by side with Obama!

    The voters will have Media and Hillary eating from the same snot nose pie when Obama wins this!!

  23. No Hillary

    By looking at the current delegates count, Hillary is the one that badly needs a big win to survive – so being tied with Obama in Indiana means: BILLARY PREPARE YOUR DROP OUR SPEECH!!!

  24. No Longer For Obama

    What do you EXPECT Obama to say – I agree with Wright – of course he does but he is running for office and he is not going to say that. People are stupid if they believe what he says now when he is under the gun.

    The "white" news people need to get a Life - They do not know anything - They should get real! –

    Do they really think Rev.Wright will not be part of Obama's Life - get Real!

    You guys do not know much about Black inside relationships.

    Rev Wright will always be part of Obama's life. I believe Rev. Wright when he said this is all part of the game!

    The NEWS PEOPEL ARE REALLY STUPID! WHAT HAPPEN TO REAL JOURNALISM?
