Sweet Polly Purebred is wondering....

Edsall at Huffington Post says:

  • Barack Obama has mobilized a powerful coalition -- the core of which is made up of young, well-educated voters enraged by the war in Iraq.
  • John Edwards has mobilized the not-insignificant constituency of voters angered by job-cutbacks, declining wages, and corporate high-handedness.
  • Hillary Clinton's supporters are women over 65, the less affluent $15-$30,000 income voters, and those seeking an experienced candidate.
Wapo writes:
Look first at Iowa and where Obama did best. According to the National Election Poll entranced poll, Obama enjoyed a margin of better than 2-1 over Clinton among independents. He won overwhelmingly among young voters between the ages of 17 and 29 and among voters between the ages of 30 and 44. He was the clear choice of liberals. He beat Clinton decisively among voters with incomes above $75,000.
The new Democratic front-runner, Obama, has the current advantage of pulling in independent voters crucial not only to the primary contest here, but to the general election next November.

So....New Hampshire people, I am reading, tend to favor the underdog.

Who is the underdog here?
