Here it is:
24% John Edwards
23% Hillary Clinton
22% Barack Obama
Obviously, it’s close. Well within the margin of error.
What’s the movement since the last McClatchy/MSNBC poll before the holidays?

We can see Edwards picking up substantial support while both Obama and Clinton see support slipping away.
Who’s the second choice candidate of Iowa Dems?
36% John Edwards
25% Barack Obama

And now comes the best news for folks who want John Edwards to be our nominee.
If supporters of the non-major candidates are forced into their second choice, who’s winning?
33% John Edwards
26% Hillary Clinton
26% Barack Obama
Were this to be the result you would be looking at a whole new ball-game for President.
