Nation-Building >> Dean Leads in New Florida Poll (South Carolina too) | 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 Leads in New Florida Poll (South Carolina too)

posted by Trammell at Friday, December 05, 2003 permalink View blog reactions
Dean National and Points West editor and contributor Paul Dem has an excellent post published on the main page of Daily Kos today:
From the St. Petersburg Times/Miami Herald.  Seems to be no trend lines yet.

Dec. 1-3 MOE +/- 5.3%

Undecided 31
Dean 16
Clark 15
Lieberman 15
Gephardt 8.5
Kerry 6
The rest 3

Interesting this:

In hypothetical head-to-head matchups with the five leading Democrats, Bush would beat any of them by eight to 18 percentage points. Dean and Clark came the closest: Each trailed the president by eight points.

Update: Bush's re-elect number, at 43 percent, is good news for the Dems.

Clark is strongest in Pinellas County, with 24.2 percent of voters favored Clark, with Dean and Gephardt at 12.2 percent each.

In Hillsborough County, Dean led the pack with 23.8 percent, followed by Gephardt with 16.7 percent and Clark with 14.3 percent.

Update 2:Dean has a small lead in the new Zogby poll out of South Carolina:

Dean 11 percent, Lieberman 9 percent, Clark 9 percent, Edwards 7 percent, Al Sharpton 7 percent, Gephardt 7 percent, Kerry 4 percent, Braun 3 percent, and Kucinich 3 percent. (J A)
Nice job, Paul! JUST NOTICED: Anna has a great post on Florida here as well!

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.
