Edwards Urges Supporters to Ignore Polls

COLUMBUS, Ky -- Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards is urging supporters to ignore polls and fundraising numbers that show him running third in the party's presidential race.

Edwards told a crowd at a Kentucky Civil War site on the Mississippi River that there is untapped support for his platform of paying attention to rural America.

The former North Carolina senator told the Columbus, Kentucky, audience that political pundits think only fundraising is important. He says he will rely on grass-roots and the Internet to create rural support.
