"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

If you liked the national polls, you'll LOVE the latest NH poll...

Also posted on the O-blog, the latest Franklin Pierce poll shows Dean opening a large lead (33%) over Kerry (19%), and Clark (7%). His lead cuts across all age groups and gender. Nice work, Dean Team. Must be all those buses rumbling from Vermont to New Hampshire for those busy canvassing days during leaf-peeping season. From the analysis of the polling data:

"Governor Dean is opening up a significant lead over Senator Kerry and the pack lagging behind them," said Rich Killion, Fitzwater Center Director. "The first candidate to creep into the 30% range in the Franklin Pierce poll, Dean is enjoying clear leads over Kerry among every critical voter category: Democrats, Independents, men and women and with voters of each of the states' two congressional districts."

Even though Howard Dean has been the frontrunner since our July survey, he continues to define himself on his terms and leaves this period -- for the first time -- with not only the highest net favorability rating (+63%)," said Killion, "but also the smallest growth in unfavorable ratings of any candidate in this survey (increase of 3% unfavorable rating)."

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.
