Dean surging in Iowa?

Planned Parenthood Iowa Poll of January 2000 Democratic Caucus-Goers Finds Virtual Three-Way Dead Heat WASHINGTON, July 2 /U.S. Newswire/ -- A Planned Parenthood poll of January 2000 Iowa Democratic Caucus attendees released today found that the contest among Democratic presidential candidates is extremely close and could be influenced significantly by a few key issues. U.S. Representative Dick Gephardt, former Vermont Governor Howard Dean and U.S. Senator John Kerry lead the pack of nine candidates, but two-thirds of those polled say they could change their minds. ... Among the January 2000 Democratic caucus-goers (328) surveyed, the top choices included Gephardt at 21 percent, Dean at 20 percent and Kerry at 18 percent. The full survey was conducted of 611 random telephone interviews of registered Democrats and Independents who participated in any Iowa Democratic caucus between 1984 and 2000. In those surveyed, the top choices were Gephardt at 25 percent, Dean at 15 percent, Kerry at 15 percent and Lieberman at 11 percent.

Update: Here's an AP report on this poll. Looks like it is time for Gephardt to start getting the Dean sweats.
