National vs. local trends

Hill;5/30/2007, Vol. 14 Issue 64, p17
The author reflects on the difference between national surveys and state-by-state surveys of the presidential races in the U.S. He argues that there are some indications that the national trends may more decisive than they have been in the past. An overview of the results of the national surveys and the polling in the early-primary states is presented. He suggests that the national front-runners will likely impose their leads on the early states.
