DEAN TIED FOR LEAD IN JUST-RELEASED NEW HAMPSHIRE POLL
Franklin Pierce Poll Shows Dean and Kerry Tied at 23%
BURLINGTON, VT—Democratic presidential candidate Governor Howard Dean is tied with Senator John Kerry at 23% for the lead in New Hampshire, according to a just-released poll by Franklin Pierce College.
“This is the fourth poll showing that Governor Dean and Senator Kerry are neck-and-neck with each other in New Hampshire,” said Dean for America campaign manager Joe Trippi. “The new poll confirms the enthusiastic groundswell of support for Governor Dean we have seen across New Hampshire, from the Governor’s recent breakfast in Portsmouth to his March lunch meeting in Manchester.”
The poll of 600 likely primary voters, conducted between April 27-May 1, had a margin of error of +/- 4%. The poll showed similar results to an April 3 Franklin Pierce poll, which showed Dean and Kerry tied at 21%.
The current poll has Senator Joe Lieberman and Representative Richard Gephardt trailing at 9 percent and 8 percent, respectively. Former Senator Gary Hart and retired General Wesley Clark came in at 2 percent. Senator John Edwards, Senator Bob Graham, Representative Dennis Kucinich, and former Senator Carol Moseley Braun tied for 1 percent.

Obama 2008 - I want my country back
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.
