New NH Poll - Dean Widens Lead in ARG Poll http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/news/archive/2003/09/17/national1743EDT0730.DTL
The AP story on the event is somewhat misleading, though. It says that Dean's lead has narrowed in comparison to two other recently released polls. What they ignore is that the last ARG poll had Dean at 28 and Kerry at 21. Kerry isn't closing the gap. He's stalled and Dean is still building.
Gephardt is also down slightly in this poll from the one last month.
Given the current numbers, without a major shakeup, Dean and Kerry are the only two candidates on track to win delegates in New Hampshire. Clark may still be able to provide that shakeup, but it is yet to be seen.

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.
