Clinton up TEN in Indiana?

The Wright scandal hits home in this poll:
A statewide poll indicates a dramatic shift of support from Sen. Barack Obama to Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton ahead of next week's Indiana Democratic presidential primary -- a shift that could be explained by a controversy over Obama's ex-pastor, the poll's conductor says.
The survey . . . showed Clinton with a 10-point lead over Obama in Indiana -- 48 percent to 38 percent -- with 14 percent of respondents undecided. ...
The telephone poll of 943 randomly selected likely Democratic primary voters, conducted from April 25 through April 29, showed Clinton's support getting stronger as the polling period advanced.
Meanwhile, the Gallup national tracking poll shows Hillary up 49-45 -- a 14-point swing since April 21, when Obama led 50-40. CNN's latest poll, conducted April 28-30, has a virtual dead heat (Obama 46, Hillary 45), with Obama having lost 6 points since mid-March.

Despite (or perhaps because of) this evidence of Wright-inspired meltdown for Obama, he continues to pick up Democratic superdelegates.
