1 Howard Dean 7940 22.7% +0.4 1 7530 22.3%
2 John Kerry 5780 16.6% -1.4 2 6060 18.0%
3 Wesley Clark 4990 14.3% +0.6 3 4630 13.6%

9 Carol Moseley Braun 1070 3.1% +0.5 9 878 2.6%

A relatively uneventful week as Dean continues to improve his lead and Kerry slips back down. Wesley Clark holds steady which, considering his need to generate excitement, is not a positive thing for his campaign. Right now in the Anybody-But-Dean race, if you aren't going up you are going down.

I'm still surprised at Gephardt's lackluster showing in the media considering the strength of his campaign compared to the rest of the not-Dean field. This may be an indication that organization will only get you so far if you don't have a compelling narrative. Dean's got the organization, but he also has the story.

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