2008 Speaking of John Edwards and Early Polls in Iowa…

Following up on the recent Slog discussion, Jenny Durkan, the Washington State Chair for the John Edwards for President campaign, is calling my attention to this new poll, which finds John Edwards leading in Iowa.
Both polls were conducted around the same time. The poll I cited has a smaller margin of error (+/- 3.5), contacted more likely caucus voters (787), and was conducted over the course of six days (July 29 - August 5). The poll Durkan is citing has a larger margin of error (+/- 4.3), contacted fewer likely caucus voters (509), and was conducted over a very short period of time (August 2 - August 3).
