Polls: Clinton, Obama tied in Indiana

[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2008/images/04/29/art.signs.ap.jpg caption="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.

    Hillary can't win without lie, lies and more lies. They can steal this if they want too, but the Dems can't will without yours truly, us black folk!
    It "aint" gonna happen ! The Dem party might as well pack up and call it a lose if Barack isn't the "Man", forget about it Dems/DNC/ Super delegates !

    Indiana wake up!!!

    How stupid can you get?

    She says she was dodging bullets in Bosnia when she was receiving flowers.

    This is an insult to every man and woman who has ever served in the military and every military family who has kids in Afghanistan and or Iraq just like my boy.

    I really wish he was receiving flowers instead of having to dodge road side bombs.

    Hillary you have disgraced our families just to make yourself look “experienced”

    Get a real life!

    DEMS, consider the following closely:

    Obama: Rev Wright
    Clintons: Whitewater, Lewinsky, Travelgate, Rose Law Firm, WH sleepovers for $100,000K, Bills consulting, Library Donors, Sexual Affairs, on, on on

    If Clinton steals this thing:

    Voter Base:

    African American: GONE (they have relied on them heavily as a swing vote)
    Latino: Significantly weakened (They like Obama, plus none appreciate Richardson being called a bum and a Judas!)
    Young Vote: Obama brought in a new generation of Dems, significantly weakened
    Senior Vote: will likely remain the same
    Blue Collar: Steady
    Educated: Slightly weakened, more so if an Indy candidate shows up
    Bubba Vote: Weakened, they got rid of the Black guy, you honestly think they will vote for a woman?

    The Black vote has often been the variable which gets the Dems in, got Bill in twice, although Ross Perot helped in the first time. They ARE GONE, will not vote......

    Result: President John McCain
    Go Hillary, more Jeremiah Wright!!!!!
