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

The poll was done by Selzer & Co., who 538.com ranked as the most accurate pollster during the primary season:

E: -3.25

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.
