I’ve got some unavoidable family business at 5:00 EDT, so let’s wrap up with post #12:

* Steve Singiser of Daily Kos Elections‘ roundup of the avalanche of recent polls, many from YouGov, is a must-read.

* RCP’s Scott Conroy has one of those “5 things to watch for tonight” columns on the four states holding primaries today. I’ll have my own take tomorrow.

* At the Prospect, Matt Bruenig reports new research showing that the top 10% of American families own three-fourths of the country’s wealth. The bottom half owns 1.1%.

* At Ten Miles Square, Francis Wilkinson notes that HRC’s upcoming flurry of events is still far short of a real campaign–because she’s doing fine without it.

* At College Guide, Clare McCann reports on a new Gallup survey showing Americans overwhelmingly favor federal dollars to boost pre-K education.

And in non-political news:

* Organic food-maker Annie’s swallowed whole by General Mills.

That’s it for Tuesday. We’ll close with the Otis Redding song I unsurprisingly identify with the most: “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay.” It was released after his death on December 10, 1967.
