For any pollsters out there, let the politick begin. It’s just a week away from the first primaries for the next President of the United States. Up until now, all polls have been nonsense compared to the final poll, the pull of the people of Iowa which have had a tradition of determining the election.
Whoever wins this first state, emerges into the next state with the best position in the media, having already gained the support of a true state majority.
This often leads to winning the second primary, so on and so forth. As for the losers, especially the ones in the single digits, the media attention, and thus the election, will be all but over.
Funny how the state of Iowa can do that.
So back to that poll…
Straight out of Des Moines, where everyone in politics will be awake and talking loud until the Jan 3rd caucuses, a very close 3-way tie is going on between Edwards, Obama and Clinton.
From the WFC Courier:
“Wednesday and Thursday, showed Edwards and Obama tied with 29 percent to lead Democrats, followed by Clinton with 28 percent. Bill Richardson was fourth with 7 percent. Joe Biden was fifth with 3 percent. Chris Dodd and Dennis Kucinich both had 1 percent and 2 percent were undecided."
On the Republican side:
"Huckabee leads with 34 percent, followed by Romney with 27 percent. Fred Thompson is a distant third with 11 percent, followed by a three-way tie for fourth between Rudy Giuliani, John McCain and Ron Paul, with 8 points each. Duncan Hunter had 1 percent and 3 percent were undecided. ”
