A new poll shows Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton tied in the critical May 6 Democratic primary in Indiana.
Among voters who say they plan to vote in the primary, the poll shows that Mr. Obama and Mrs. Clinton each draw 37%. Some 21% of the electorate is undecided in the poll by Bellwether Research and Consulting, an Alexandria, Va-baed firm that conducts surveys for Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels.
The poll was conducted April 28-30, as the controversy over Mr. Obama’s former pastor Jeremiah Wright drew heavy media attention. Bellwether President Christine Matthews said Mrs. Clinton led by 13 percentage points among self-identified Democrats. But Mr. Obama drew even with strong support from self-identified independents and Republicans in Indiana, which has no party registration and permits any registered voter to participate.
