3-Way Lead in Iowa, I Answer My Own Questions
A new Washington Post poll puts Obama, Edwards, Clinton essentially tied at 27-26-26. Richardson in double digits here too at 11. Is it time to pay attention to, or care about, these polls yet? No. I'll tell you when. Can Richardson really make this a four-way race? Maybe.
One interesting thing about this poll - they asked respondents for their second choice. This left things essentially even, still. 51% chose Obama either 1st or 2nd. 48 each for Clinton and Edwards. I think this is good news for...Hillary. The theory that Obama and Edwards represent an anti-Hillary vote, and with one out their supporters would flock to the other, doesn't hold up here.
