    Yeah for Gov. Daniels!! Despite what people say, he has done so much to bring business and jobs to our state. If you compare our unemployment rate with that of other states in our area, we are kicking butt! Employment is down everywhere and it's not Mitch's fault! GO GOV!

    Red, Red, WHINE must not know what is happening in Indiana. A state with a balanced budget , the first in years, with out raising taxes, the only state in the union with a fully funded highway program, better economic conditions than any other rmidwest state, and numerous new industries, llke Honda, Toyota, and Nestles. Yeah, we sure are stupid. Too bad the rest of the country isn't as stupid.

    Great! Mitch Daniels is one of the best Governors Indiana has had in a long time. He cares about education, has lowered property taxes and has gotten this state out of debt. Keep up the good work Mitch!

    This really shouldn't come as a shock to many. Daniels has a strong base in central Indiana, and the challenger was from northern Indiana. It's hard to win a state over an incumbent, who by many accounts has done a good job, when you aren't even centrally known within the state.

    I don't see this as any real shock and its effect on Obama will probably be minimal.

    Daniels wins. Excellent. One of the few states with a budget surplus, which is fighting back to regain lost jobs has selected a guy with experience, brains and guts.

    I called IN for the Republican Party – IN does not really matter in this race.
    Obama 338 – McCain 200. McCain wins IN. Rove said it today – 338 Landslide. It could be better than that – 364 w/ NC and IN.

    President Elect Obama

    I would just like to point out that Indiana is not a stupid state, we are home to some of the nation's most presigious Universities, such as Notre Dame in IU. We hold a large college student vote that balances out much of the conservative vote. Indiana is a farming state, it would be expected that many people would vote conservative, especially considering our governor is Republican has done very well for our state in the recent past, there was no need to remove him for the Democratic candidate who has a very questionable past. Why not simply criticize a voter for voting against someone you don't like instead of a whole state? Some fair american you are Red, Red WHINE!!

    Big mistake. The most balanced election coverage you get by switching channels all the time. But of course, if you prefer plain bias that suits your views just stick with your preferred channel. Good luck from on American to another.

    Maybe he'll sell another part of our infrastructure to foreigners. Anyone who thinks that's a "good job" is delusional.
