2 Howard Dean 2590 16.3% +3.5 5 1580 12.8%

8 Al Sharpton 1010 6.4% +0.7 8 701 5.7%
9 Carol Moseley Braun 443 2.8% -0.6 9423 3.4%
Attention turned back to the campaign this week with everyone showing increased numbers (except for Braun). The biggest winner of the week is obviously Dean who came barreling back into the #2 stop with coverage of his appearance on Meet The Press and of his official announcement. John Kerry also apparently had a good week, though I'm not sure where the increased coverage came from. Edwards, Graham and Gephardt all fluctuated, but not dramatically (though Graham's star may be fading, which is unusual considering the increased air play the WMD issue is getting). Lieberman suffered the worse loss this week. I wonder if people are starting to question the viability of his candidacy. Kucinich and Sharpton continue to hang in there. I really have to wonder if Braun will even make it to the next year. Next week's possible news movers: MoveOn poll results. Q2 fundraising results are reported. Continued coverage of Bush's WMD problem. (Methodology: All numbers are taken from the hit counts when searching on the Google News Service for news stories containing each candidate's name. Click on each name to rerun the search. You will likely get different results as the numbers are constantly changing. I make absolutely no claim that these numbers have any real meaning.)
