The end is near...but not quite here. And in the next contest, it's advantage Hillary:
Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton leads rival Bernie Sanders by 13 percentage points in Indiana, according to statewide polling conducted for IPFW.
Clinton was favored by 54 percent of respondents and Sanders by 41 percent, with 5 percent undecided ahead of Indiana’s primary election on Tuesday.
The survey, commissioned by IPFW’s Mike Downs Center for Indiana Politics, found that while 93 percent of Clinton’s supporters said their preference for the former secretary of state is strong, only 75 percent of Sanders’ backers said the same thing about the Vermont senator.
The relative lack of strong support for Sanders, who typically draws large crowds to his campaign rallies, is “a little bit surprising” and “opposite of what conventional wisdom would be,” IPFW political scientist Michael Wolf said Wednesday.These are the strongest recent Indiana numbers for Clinton after a string of low-mid single digit polling leads, so it's looking pretty good for a win there. However, things are looking so good generally that the Clinton campaign isn't even advertising in Indiana and other upcoming states.
This really says it all. Even if Bernie manages to squeak out a win in Indiana and a few other contests before this is done, it won't change the fact that Hillary will be the ultimate victor.In a clear pivot to the general, Clinton campaign is no longer spending any $ on ads in upcoming primary states, @mmurraypolitics reports— Monica Alba (@albamonica) April 28, 2016
