Results of SurveyUSA Election Poll #13801
No Clear Trend in Indiana -- Clinton Ends April Just As She Started: In a Democratic Primary in Indiana today, 04/28/08, 8 days until votes are counted, Hillary Clinton finishes ahead of Barack Obama, according to a SurveyUSA poll conducted for WHAS-TV in Louisville and WCPO-TV in Cincinnati. The results are identical to a SurveyUSA TV poll released 4 weeks ago, on 04/01/08. Clinton led then 52% to 43%, leads now 52% to 43%. Other polls show the contest closer; some polls show Obama ahead. SurveyUSA tracking graphs show movement toward Clinton in the middle of April but offsetting movement to Obama at the end of April. This back-and-forth can be seen clearly on the interactive tracking graphs for males, for Democrats, for pro-choice voters, and for residents of greater Indianapolis. Clinton's advantage is steady among women, steady among voters age 50+, and steady in Southern Indiana, which borders Kentucky. Obama is gaining ground among voters under 50, where he leads for the first time; among liberals, where he leads for the first time; in Northern Indiana, where he is tied for the first time; and in Central Indiana, where he has cut Clinton's lead in half. Clinton, by contrast, is making steady inroads among Independent voters.
Filtering / Context: 1,600 state of Indiana adults were interviewed 04/25/08 through 04/27/08. All interviews conducted after results of the 04/22/08 Pennsylvania Primary were known. Of the Indiana adults, 1,382 were registered to vote. Of them, 628 were identified by SurveyUSA as likely to vote in the 05/06/08 Indiana Democratic Primary. 55% of likely Primary voters now name the Economy as the issue the next President should focus on ahead of all others, up from 44% a month ago, and double what it was when SurveyUSA began asking the question 4 months ago in early primary polling. 2% of Indiana likely voters in today's poll tell SurveyUSA they have already voted, 98% have yet to vote.
