Nothing To See Here, Please Disperse

One thing about this new Iowa poll, reported in today's Des Moines Register (via PoliticalWire), that shows John Edwards at 36 percent and "far ahead of the rest of the pack of possible Democratic presidential candidates." The poll was conducted in October--i.e. before Tom Vilsack (who comes in fourth) officially announced he's running for president and before Obamamania (whose namesake comes in third) kicked into high gear. In other words, I don't think this poll tells us too much about the current state of the race, except maybe that Hillary--who comes in a distant second in the poll, trailing Edwards by 20 points--is still not that popular in Iowa.
