California Dreamin' http://www.bayarea.com/mld/mercurynews/news/politics/6356406.htm
The poll, released today, showed Dean is the choice of 16 percent of likely Democratic voters in California, followed by Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., at 15 percent and Sen. Joe Lieberman, D-Conn., at 14 percent.
Because the poll has a margin of error of plus or minus five percentage points, the three candidates are essentially tied, meaning the race for California's haul of convention delegates in the March 2 primary is still up in the air. One-third of respondents said they are undecided.
``The only explanation that I know of is that whole momentum we've sensed in Iowa and New Hampshire and other places we've been has actually found its way to California,'' said Dean campaign manager Joe Trippi.
here's the full breakdown:
Dean: 16 (7)
Kerry: 15 (16)
Lieberman: 14 (22)
Gephardt: 7 (14)
The Yahoo/AP story also has some additional detail about the base of Dean's support:
The poll found Dean's support strongest among men, college graduates and people who call themselves "liberal." Kerry polled best among voters over age 50, college graduates and those living in the San Francisco Bay area.

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.
