For a long time it seemed inconceivable that we would face this problem, but don't we need some more polling to be done on this primary? All throughout 2007 I feel like I was being inundated with a new, meaningless national poll every 36 hours. And for a while, it seemed as if multiple Iowa and New Hampshire polls were coming out every day. But now, there's just an eerie silence. But I, for one, would be very interested in a poll of likely voters in the Texas, Ohio, and Pennsylvania Democratic Party primaries and I can't be the only one.

For that matter, will nobody think of the small states? With regard to, say, Hawaii all of our information is based on conjecture and hearsay. Obama was born in Hawaii, but then you read things about "the Democratic establishment is aggressively working to inoculate the state against Obama--priming their warhorses, the two biggest government unions, for a major turnout effort and bringing professional organizers from the mainland." How about a poll? It's a weird situation.
