"Priceless" Polling Leftovers**

Mark
Mellman
- in a must read that deserves more discussion than I've had time
to give- tells us that the Democratic presidential nomination "ain't over yet,"
and that the Iowa caucuses "stand as a potential choke point on [Sen.
Clinton's] march to the nomination."

The LA Times' Hook
and Barabak
report on how "Clinton
built her lead," with quotes from various pollsters including unaligned
Democrat Geoff Garin arguing that "the thing is not a done deal."

David
Hill
sees American public opinion "stuck in a rut," particularly on the
issues that Americans rate as most important.

Kathy
Frankovic
reminds us of the limits of exit polls: good at "helping us
understand what an election means," not so good at assessing "whether or not
vote fraud has taken place."

Dante
Scala
has been checking the log books at New Hampshire television station WMUR and
reporting on the ad buys of Republican candidates (via Jon
Martin
).

**"Leftovers," because I'm feeling guilty about borrowing
"Remainders" from the Politico bloggers, and "priceless"
because, once again, you can take the boy out of Cleveland...
