As I mentioned here, the new Des Moines Registar poll has Obama ahead but with questionable methodology. It’s worth mentioning that even Obama’s own internal polling does not show voter turnout this high or with this many independents. Also considering that Obama went negative hard on Edwards in the last week, for the first time, suggests that Obama is certainly not ahead like the DMR suggests.
Joe Trippi, Edward’s strategist, says it best:
“If the crowd numbers are that huge, and ours are this small, and they’re going to kick our ass then there’s no reason to explain it. Just show up and kick our ass. It’s better if you don’t say anything about it. Anytime anybody starts throwing those kinds of things around, it’s because they’re in deep shit.”
