Latest Indiana Polling

After what seemed weeks without any new Hoosier presidential campaign news, CNN released a slew of battleground polls this afternoon-- Indiana included. The results:
CNN/Time (890 RV, 3.5%)
McCain 51
Obama 45
However when you add third party candidates to the mix the results shake out to be:
McCain 48
Obama 43
Nader 4
Barr 2
McKinney 1
Why include third party candidates at all? CNN explains:
Third-party presidential candidates could affect the results in some of these states.

When included in the results, independent Ralph Nader, Libertarian Bob Barr and Green Party candidate Cynthia McKinney grab a total of 7 percent of the vote in Indiana, 6 percent in Florida and Ohio, and 5 percent in North Carolina, which could be enough to influence the outcome in those states.
Another poll shows yet more indication that Obama really does have a shot at pulling off the unthinkable. I have said it before and I will echo it once again, this race is well within reach and with hard work and a dedicated focus, fellow bloosiers we can swing our beloved state blue come November. It all boils down to one simple question. How bad do you want it?
