More poll numbers: The Howard Dean campaign continues to steam roll across the country with Wesley Clark, Dick Gephardt, and Joe Lieberman emerging as the alternatives. Here are some new poll numbers.
In Georgia on Thursday, Zogby showed Dean with an 11 point lead: Dean at 18.8 percent, Gephardt with 7.5 percent, Clark at 6.5 percent, Sharpton with 5.6 percent, and Lieberman in at 5.5 percent. However, 42 percent are undecided. It is also interesting to note that the numbers have flipped: Clark, Lieberman and Gephardt were tops in October. Bush has a huge lead over the Democrats.
A new Capital Consultants/Wispolitics.com poll showed Dean with a 20-plus point lead in Wisconsin: Dean at 33 percent, Lieberman at 12 percent, Clark at 11 percent, and Gephardt with 9 percent. 22 percent are undecided. Again, this is a flip from October where Dean was in third with Lieberman leading.
In New Hampshire, American Research Group showed Dean still leading with Kerry gaining slightly: Dean at 45 percent, John Kerry at 20 percent, Clark with 8 percent, and Lieberman at 6 percent.
On Wednesday, SurveyUSA also showed Dean with a comfortable lead in New Hampshire: Dean with 45 percent, Kerry at 15 percent, and Lieberman and Clark with 11 percent.
Quinnipiac University showed Dean opening up in Pennsylvania: Dean with 28 percent, Lieberman at 17 percent, Gephardt with 10 percent, Clark with 9 percent, and Kerry at 7 percent. Bush has a 6- to 11-point lead on all the Democrats.
On Tuesday, Survey USA released a poll from Arizona showing Dean and Clark neck and neck: Dean 31 percent, Clark with 29 percent, Lieberman with 10 percent, Gephardt at 9 percent, and Kerry with 7 percent.
Also, WMUR Channel 9 released a poll in New Hampshire showing Dean with a 29 point lead: Dean at 46 percent, Kerry at 17 percent, Clark at 10 percent, and Lieberman with 7 percent.
SurveyUSA also published a South Carolina poll showing Dean and Clark in a tight race: Dean with 21 percent, Clark with 20 percent, with Sharpton and John Edwards coming in with 15 percent. Gephardt has 10 percent.
In Oklahoma, SurveyUSA showed Clark leading: Clark with 34 percent, Dean at 21 percent, Lieberman with 11 percent, and Edwards and Gephardt with 8 percent.
ABCNews is reporting that Saddam infiltrated US command in Iraq: ["Saddam Hussein’s Loyalists Infiltrated U.S. Operations in Iraq"]. Wow.
