The biggest winner this week is again Howard Dean who, for the first time in the history of this poll (6 weeks running now) has taken the #1 spot from John Kerry. It is no coincidence that Dean takes the top spot here in the same week that he moves into #1 in KOS's cattle call (KOS can read the news as well as I can). No doubt the Q2 numbers story was a big part of this changing of the guard. Kerry didn't suffer to bad though as his share went up as well, though only by half a percentage point. The other "serious" candidates all suffered oxygen deprivation as the Dean Machine sucked the air out of the room. Meanwhile, the also-rans had a good week. Though Braun jumping from 2.8 to 3.8 is not exactly something to write home about. (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.)
