The Clinton and Edwards camps are, though, questioning the poll’s methodology which has huge turnout from independents pushing Obama over the top. Indeed, the silver lining for Clinton and Edwards is that the pressure is now on Obama to win.
On the Republican side, Mike Huckabee leads Mitt Romney 32 to 26 with John McCain in third. The poll goes against the conventional wisdom which had Romney pulling ahead of Huckabee who appears to have been feeling the pressure in the last few days. If Huckabee can hang on, it would be a huge blow to Romney who is now behind McCain in New Hampshire, according to a new poll out today. Defeat in both Iowa and New Hampshire would doom Romney’s campaign.
