The LA Times/Bloomberg poll shows Senator Obama overtaking Clinton by five points in Indiana, 40 percent to 35 percent, after trailing her there for weeks.


Clinton’s Pennsylvania evaporated after Obama launched a bus tour over six day in the state.
 

In North Carolina, the LA Times/Blomberg poll shows Obama enjoying a 13 point spread, 47 percent to 34 percent. Both North Carolina and Indiana vote May 6.


Analysts say Clinton needs to win by at least a 12 percent to 15 percent spread in Pennsylvania to have any meaningful gains in the total delegates count.


A loss in Pennsylvania could spell the end of her presidential campaign.
