Kerry By A Landslide?

KERRY BY A LANDSLIDE?….Kos has the final tracking polls for New Hampshire, and if you just average the numbers together ? which we will consider good enough for the usual sloppy blog coverage you expect here ? this is how things shape up:

  • Kerry: 35%

  • Dean: 22%

  • Clark: 13%

  • Edwards: 12%

  • Lieberman: 8%

Of course, everyone says the New Hampshire polls are notoriously unreliable, New Hampshirites themselves are notoriously contrarian, and anyway look at what happened in Iowa. Which is quite right. Still, this is probably the closest we’re going to get to the conventional wisdom, so I thought I’d share it.

As for personal predictions, forget it. In fact, around here New Hampshire is already yesterday’s news and we’re looking forward to Oklahoma, Arizona, South Carolina, Missouri, New Mexico, and Delaware. It ain’t over yet.
