JASPER, Ind. – Had it not been for the third podium between them at Tuesday’s gubernatorial debate, Republican incumbent Mitch Daniels and Democratic candidate Jill Long Thompson might not have realized Libertarian Andy Horning on stage. The first two spent the evening attacking each other’s policies and sometimes their character, while Horning protested the evils of big-party politics.“For a very long time we have felt just that we don’t have a choice,” Horning said. “What do you hate most about politics?

Ted Carmines has been teaching a course on the presidential election every four years for the last 30. The political science professor remembers the last time the state of Indiana voted for the Democratic nominee: 1964, the year almost everyone did. Lyndon B. Johnson won by a landslide, defeating Republican Barry Goldwater, who won only six states. Carmines said this is the point in the presidential election where normally the Republican nominee would be ahead by 10 to 15 points in Indiana.
