The conventional wisdom says that the winner of Iowa usually gets a pretty substantial boost in New Hampshire. So of course, when the latest tracking polls come out tomorrow we should expect a pretty big bump for Obama in New Hampshire.
No this doesn’t mean that everyone suddenly loves Obama, it’s just a representation of bandwagon momentum. It’s pretty sad that we have an electoral system that anoints random unrepresentative early states kingmakers. But of course the race isn’t over at all, but the deck will be stacked.
