Google News Democratic Primary Poll for 11/02/2003

  This Week (11/2) Last Week (10/24)
1 John Kerry 5750 18.4% +2.9 3 5120 15.5%
2 Howard Dean 5630 18.0% -1.0 1 6280 19.0%
3 Wesley Clark 4380 14.0% -3.4 2 5730 17.3%
4 John Edwards 3960 12.6% +0.8 4 3900 11.8%
5 Joe Lieberman 3620 11.6% +1.4 5 3340 10.1%
6 Dick Gephardt 3010 9.6% -0.3 6 3260 9.9%
7 Dennis Kucinich 2110 6.7% -0.2 7 2280 6.9%
8 Al Sharpton 1730 5.5% -0.6 8 2010 6.1%
9 Carol Moseley Braun 1130 3.6% +0.2 9 1120 3.4%

Whoa! I don't know what has resulted in the sudden dramatic rise in Kerry's media share. It might be the increased attacks by him on Dean, but Gephardt has been making similar attacks and his share continues to drop (this despite the fact that many people believe Gephardt has a better chance of defeating Dean than Kerry does). Wesley Clark's assault on Dean continues to fade as well.

So Dean continues to be the #1 story. It remains to be seen who will win the battle for #2.

The following is a chart of the Google News Media Share over the last few months.

You will get different results as the numbers are constantly changing. I make absolutely no claim that these numbers have any real meaning.)
