Nation-Building >> Kerry and Dean favored in latest new Hampshire poll | 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

Kerry and Dean favored in latest new Hampshire poll

posted by annatopia at Wednesday, January 15, 2003 permalink View blog reactions
One of our alert readers (Thanks, Scott!) sent us a note with the following message: "I'm sure many will note that Dean has better name recognition in NH than in much of the rest of the country, but what the hell - name recognition in NH means a good showing in the primary, media attention... "

The poll showed Kerry at 27% and Dean at 15%. All other candidates (even Lieberman and Edwards) polled in single digits. According to the research firm conducting the poll, "With Gore out of the race, preference for Kerry has increased 17 percentage points and preference for Dean has increased 13 percentage points." Now granted, a majority of voters were still undecided, but a favorable showing in New Hampshire could add serious momentum to Dean's candidacy.

We'll continue to watch the polls as the campaign season draws near.

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.
