"America has two great dominant strands of political thought - conservatism, which, at its very best, draws lines that should not be crossed; and progressivism, which, at its very best, breaks down barriers that should never have been erected." -- Bill Clinton, Dedication of the Clinton Presidential Library, November 2004

Iowa poll results

posted by Aziz P. at Tuesday, December 17, 2002 permalink View blog reactions

From ABC's The Note on 12/12/02:

Global Strategy Group/polling company survey of 200 likely IOWA caucus attendees shows:

WITH GORE: Gore 37%, Kerry 17, Gephardt 15, Daschle 10, Edwards 2, Dean 1.

WITHOUT GORE: Gephardt 26%, Kerry 18, Lieberman 16, Daschle 12, Edwards 4, Dean 1.

This last place showing is astonishing given that Dean has spent most of the past year in Iowa. However, this poll predates Gore's announcement. It is possible that the reality of Gore withdrawing will affect people's opinions in a way that a theoretical question could not predict.

About Nation-Building

Nation-Building was founded by Aziz Poonawalla in August 2002 under the name Dean Nation. Dean Nation was the very first weblog devoted to a presidential candidate, Howard Dean, and became the vanguard of the Dean netroot phenomenon, raising over $40,000 for the Dean campaign, pioneering the use of Meetup, and enjoying the attention of the campaign itself, with Joe Trippi a regular reader (and sometime commentor). Howard Dean himself even left a comment once. Dean Nation was a group weblog effort and counts among its alumni many of the progressive blogsphere's leading talent including Jerome Armstrong, Matthew Yglesias, and Ezra Klein. After the election in 2004, the blog refocused onto the theme of "purple politics", formally changing its name to Nation-Building in June 2006. The primary focus of the blog is on articulating purple-state policy at home and pragmatic liberal interventionism abroad.
