The Clinton Surge

THE CLINTON SURGE....This is just weird. Here is Gallup's latest daily tracking poll:
The increase in support for Hillary Clinton at the national level that Gallup saw in interviewing conducted Sunday and Monday continued in interviewing Tuesday night. Gallup Poll Daily tracking conducted Feb. 3-5 now includes three consecutive days in which Clinton has done well, giving her a 13-percentage point lead over Barack Obama, 52% to 39%.
This polling was all done before the election, so it has nothing to do with last night's results. But what on earth happened on Sunday to raise Hillary's stock so dramatically? And why didn't it show up in Tuesday's election? Was her surge concentrated in states that weren't voting? Why?

This is inexplicable. Gallup is obviously a reliable outfit, and these numbers are far too big to be merely a fluke. What the heck is going on?
