Google News Democratic Primary Poll for 11/21/2003
|This Week (11/21)||Last Week (11/14)|
|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.
