Early Indiana Results a Strong Sign for Obama

leave a comment »

Early results from the polls that have already closed in Indiana show Sen. Barack Obama leading Sen. John McCain, 50 percent to 49 percent, at 6:45 p.m. Eastern. This result, which represents only two percent of the state total, comes from rural areas in which the GOP outnumber Democrats by 3 to 1.

If these trends were to continue for the rest of the night, it’s going to be a short evening. Obama was expected to trail early in Indiana and catch up when polls close in the western portion of the state at 7 p.m. Eastern. McCain was supposed to be strong in the rural areas while Obama was to fare well in Gary.
