Hi there, Chloe here sitting in for Ros today.
Yesterday we seemed to be bombarded with predictions that Barack Obama would secure a narrow victory in the New Hampshire Primary, a prediction we made ourselves here at the BBC. People were writing off Hillary Clinton and some commentators even questioned whether she would drop out of the running altogether. Seems ridiculous now in hindsight. So how was it called so wrong?
Are the media both inside and outside the US in love with Barack Obama? Did the pollsters and commentators speak to the wrong people? Did voters simply say one thing in public but in the privacy of their voting booth changing their minds? Or is it an impossible job to predict winners in an election that is the most wide open for 50 years?
