Dodd Banking on Surge in Iowa

Wednesday November 28, 2007 7:46 PM

By MIKE GLOVER

Associated Press Writer

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Languishing in the polls,
Democrat Christopher Dodd says he's banking on a late
surge by Iowa supporters - and might survive a finish
as low as fourth place in the state's leadoff caucuses
if too few show up.

Iowans make up their minds late in this process and
the door is still wide, wide open here in terms of
people deciding, Dodd says. The last two weeks,
they will make up their minds.

Dodd is banking heavily on a good showing in Iowa to
boost his long-shot campaign. He's even moved his
wife and two young children to the state, and is
devoting far more campaign time to Iowa than virtually
all of his rivals. The campaign announced Wednesday
that he would skip the Democratic National Committee
meeting in the Washington area later this week to
campaign in Iowa.

He dismisses his low standing in opinion surveys.

2. hahahhahahhahahahh
Late breakers vote for the first or second option that is not the status quop candidate. Dodd has not hope of getting even 5% of the vote. It would take, God forbid, the top three being wiped out in a terrorist attack for Dodd to even have a chance of breaking into the top tier.
