After a couple debates and attacks from Jill Long Thompson, Mitch Daniels continues to lead by strong almost runaway margins.
From Frugal Hoosiers We’re pretty busy today and won’t have much to post. We wanted to make sure everyone saw this, however. Yet another independent poll verifies what the other independent polls shows (with one notable outlier which we’ve already beaten to death): Mitch Daniels continues to hold a huge double-digit lead.
From Fort Wayne News Daniels now leads in all regions of the state: in previous polling, Long Thompson led in Northern Indiana. 25% of Democrats cross over to vote for incumbent Republican Daniels; 14% of Republicans cross over to vote for Democrat Long Thompson. Independents favor Daniels by 25 points.
I have been asking recently: "Will Mitch Daniels' popularity, and the regained traction of Senator John McCain for President have down ticket effects on House or Senate races?" Thoughts? Where do you project our Congressional Delegation to end up? State house and senate?
