Nation-Building >> Dean has strong lead among LGBT voters | return to front page

"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

Dean has strong lead among LGBT voters

posted by annatopia at Monday, September 15, 2003 permalink View blog reactions
Great news from In a recent poll which sampled LGBT voters, Howard Dean led the pack. Here's the results:
Dean 37%
Gephardt, Kerry, Lieberman 4%
everyone else - less than 2.5%
Nobody else is making a dent in this politically active/aware segment of our population. What I find interesting about this poll is that the sample size is so large. Most polls sample a few hundred or a thousand voters, while this one sampled over 8000 potential voters. Plus, of those 8000, 92% were registered voters, which is much higher than the national average. The article also contains some interesting statistics about the age group breakdowns, etc. which we normally don't get with other polls. It's interesting information, and shows the depth of Dean's support in the LGBT community.

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.
