Good poll news for Gov. Dean
InsiderAdvantage Poll: Dean Leads Democrats for '04 Elections; Towery Cites 'Electro-pop' Politics: "For the first time, former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean is leading the Democratic field for the 2004 presidential elections, according to a new tracking poll taken by InsiderAdvantage in conjunction with MWI Research. Of respondents who said they plan to vote next year for someone other than President Bush, 15.6 percent indicated they would vote for Dean. This nearly doubles his percentage of 8.6 from the previous month's poll."
This is the first such poll in which Joe Lieberman did not have a lead; Dean's surge was credited to his strong Internet-based campaign plus the sudden burst of publicity from the national media.
