I've noticed that Indiana's politics are rather different than her midwest neighbours to the right (swinging Ohio) and to the left (Democratic Illiniois). Is there any particular reason for this?

I see Democratic Senator Evan Bayh should easily win re-election and it has plumped for Democratic governors of late. I'd have thought the state would be more competitive than safe Republican.

Indiana is the only state not to speak officially English in the US. so their politics is very unique.

Do they widely speak another language? I know that that they are nicknamed 'Hoosiers'. Does that have anything to do with it?

Both Indiana senators Lugar (R) and Bayh (D), despite a partisan divide, seem to be very popular incumbents, who command much bipartisan support.
