Indiana

It's 9:45 p.m. Central time and improbably enough, my home state of Indiana, a perennial shade of red, remains too close to call: 50 percent McCain to 49 percent Obama, with 88 percent of precincts reporting. The state looks to play an unexpected roll in tipping the electoral math between Obama or McCain.

What is making the race so close? Likely not evangelicals. White evangelicals represent 43 percent of the electorate and have broken 69 to 30 percent for McCain (according to CNN exit polls). Instead it seems to be women, comprising 53 percent of the electorate and so far breaking 52 to 47 percent for Obama, and young voters ages 18-29, comprising 19 percent of the electorate but breaking 63 to 35 percent for Obama (per exit polls).
