The Swing States

CREDIT:

I don’t think early polling should be dispositive in anyone’s thinking about anything, but can we put the notion that Hillary Clinton has some kind of decisive edge in swing states to rest with polls like this one out of Wisconsin? There are contested regions where Clinton looks stronger than Obama (specifically: PA/OH and FL) and contested regions where Obama looks stronger than Clinton (specifically WI/MN/IA, WA/OR, and VA) and for either to win they’ll need to do pretty well in some regions where the other one is better.
