Iowa Insider: McAuliffe: I don't think we're winning in Iowa

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Insider

Polls might show Hillary Clinton leading the Democratic field in
national polls, but one of Clinton's top advisers believes she is
trailing John Edwards in Iowa. Terry McAuliffe, the national chairman
for Clinton's campaign, doesn't believe the polls that show her ahead
in Iowa. "I don't think we're winning it," McAuliffe said during a
phone interview on the campaign trail in Iowa. "I know that 3, 4, 5
polls have us leading. I don't believe it. I think we're bunched up
there. I think we're in second. I think Edwards is still out front,
but I think we're moving. And every day, things get better for us." On
the conventional wisdom that Clinton is too polarizing to win,
McAuliffe says once people get to know her, they like her.
