No polling was conducted in Indiana for the Republican primary because John McCain was the Republican Party's presumptive nominee.


Unlike on the Democratic side, little campaigning took place as John McCain had already clinched the nomination. Ron Paul made only a few stops in the state, including Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne a day before the primary.
