Getting a feel for the Indiana governor's race has been tough. Usually, Mitch Daniels, the Republican incumbent, has had a large lead. Occasionally, though, a poll has placed Democrat Jill Long Thompson's deficit in the low single digits.
Well, count another poll in the double-digit category. Public Polling Policy finds that Daniels leads Long Thompson 57%-36%. There's no sign that this poll over-sampled Republicans -- Obama actually leads McCain by 2 points, which is better than he's done in most Indiana polls. It will be very interesting to see whether there's actually a large contingent of Daniels-Obama voters on Nov. 4.
One of Long Thompson's big problems has been money. She's just relaunching television ads now, after a month off the air.
