Online news company The Real News Network interviews IU Northwest students, faculty about Indiana's primary election

Canadian-based news service posts video interviews from campus about Democratic presidential race

The Real News Network, a Canadian-based online news service, visited Indiana University Northwest this week to interview faculty, staff and students about today's presidential primary between Democratic contenders Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Interviews from IU Northwest were featured prominently in two separate segments that are currently posted at

The first segment, "Why Clinton Leads in Northwest Indiana," features an interview with Assistant Professor of Political Science Marie Eisenstein, Ph.D., who predicted publicly last week that Hillary Clinton would make the race in Northwest Indiana much closer than national pundits had originally forecast. Poll numbers taken since then showed Clinton actually leading in Northwest Indiana heading into today's vote, despite a supposed built-in advantage for Chicago-based Obama.

The second video, "Indiana Primary 2008: Who Will Win Indiana?" features a number of interviews with faculty, staff and students on the campus grounds. Both Clinton and Obama supporters expressed their views on the candidates and the historic race.
