One Candidate Is Now Surging In The Polls. No…It Isn’t Obama…

Go read Glenn Greenwald today, not only to see who is Actually benefiting from a surge in the polls, but why you probably didn’t know it.

2 Responses to “One Candidate Is Now Surging In The Polls. No…It Isn’t Obama…”

  1. Michael Pugliese Says:

    So I click the embedded URL for the Rasmussen poll in the Glenn Greenwald piece in Salon, http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/election_20082/daily_presidential_tracking_polling_history
      Edwards was at 23% on the 6th, yesterday and today at 20%. Scanning down the  percentages for the last several months, Edwards on one day was at 18%, the range is between 13-17%.

  2. Bruce Says:

    From the Greenwald post… 

    As but one example, consider this new daily tracking poll today from Rasumussen Reports. At least according to this poll, it is true that there has been one candidate who has been genuinely surging in the last week or two among Democratic voters nationally — John Edwards:

    Edwards — who, just one week ago, was 10 points behind Obama nationally among Democrats — is now only two points behind him. Less than a month ago, he trailed Clinton by 29 points. Now it’s 13 points. He is, by far, at his high point of support nationwide. Apparently, the more exposure Democratic voters get to Edwards and his campaign positions — and that exposure has been at its high point during his surge — the more they like him. By contrast, Obama is more or less at the same level of support nationally, even having decreased some since his Iowa win (for most of mid-Decemeber, he was at 27-28 points).

    Yet to listen to media reports, Edwards doesn’t even exist.
