Mother Jones on the two "new" polls showing Hillary ahead in Iowa. In short, they're dated.
<>There's been a minor splash because of two new polls that seemingly contradict the Obama surge in Iowa.
The first is an AP-Pew poll that has the three-way race looking like this: Clinton 31%, Obama 26%, Edwards 19%
The second is an Iowa State University poll that is even more startling: Clinton 31%, Edwards 24%, Obama 20%<>
<>Here's the catch. The AP-Pew poll was conducted November 7-25. Some of the results there are two to three weeks old. The Iowa State University poll was conducted November 6-18. All of the results there are two to three weeks old. They all predate the juvenation the Obama campaign has gotten going in Iowa these past few weeks.<>
