By all means, let this poll influence Obama to dump his precious resources into IN.

On the GOP side, for 2016, look out for Gov. Phill Kline (KS), Gov. Ralph Reed (GA), Gov. JD Hayworth (AZ), Sen. David Vitter (LA), among others.

Neat. I was worried that McCain would get a North Dakota or Montana-esque bounce in Indiana, but so far it seems like he has not.

It's easier to be the most accurate (and least accurate) when you only poll one primary (not a primary actually, but a caucus).

Now that I'm looking it up, they did poll Indiana couple of weeks before the primary.  Had it as Obama +3 - barely within the MOE.

But what else did they poll, because a one-point miss in Iowa and a four-point miss in Indiana does not give me a 0.75 accuracy average.

I know she does work for the Detroit Free Press in Michigan.  I've always heard very good things about Ann Selzer, but I do not believe this poll.

Too much information. ERROR. ERROR !

I´ve created the German Wikipedia page on 2008 State polling and I used to update it every day, but now each day about 20-30 polls are released ...

http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Umfragen_zur_Pr%C3%A4sidentschaftswahl_in_den_Vereinigten_Staaten_2008_nach_Bundesstaaten

As for the poll: Indiana will be considerably closer than 2004, but I don´t think Obama can win. I would be happy though if CNN is not able to call IN after the polls are closed on Nov. 4 ...

They had an OK Michigan poll:

http://uselectionatlas.org/POLLS/PRESIDENT/2008R/polls.php?action=indpoll&id=2620080111040

which showed Romney up by 5 (actual result: Romney wins by 9).  Better than the polls that actually had McCain winning, I guess.

Must explain why McCain is spending all that time in Indiana.  Oh wait, he hasn't been there.

...anyone who says our society must force people to expose themselves to those of the opposite sexual orientation, is not decent.

So you mean if we force the gay to be exposed to the straight, we are treating the gay indecently?  Because you didn't specify which direction the hate was supposed to go there, Black Beans.
