For Whom the Polls Toll
All the pouty inside baseball surrounding Wesley Clark's dishevelled campaign team has had me down, but I just came across some chipper news:
Big news for the Clark campaign as the latest ARG poll has him beating John Edwards by 7% to take the lead in South Carolina. Even better for him, he still has far lower name recognition than John Edwards does, with only 50% of undecided voters knowing Clark, while 70% know Edwards. Also interesting is that Clark has the lowest unfavorables of any candidate in SC, a marked contrast to New Hampshire polls, which show Clark with truly puzzling levels of unfavorables.
That's news—that's numbers. And hardly news of the death-knoll variety.

More on Clark... when I'm not buzzing from excitement about Halloween.
