For political insiders and junkies, there is also this: Ann Selzer nailed the polling for the Des Moines Register, especially the predictions/projections for first time caucus-goers and independents. Most pols (especially those working for Hill and Edwards) poo-poohed her methodology. But she nailed it, again. Backstory here.
