52. He is second in meetups behind Dean despite not being in the race
So he'll have foot soldiers. There's a huge undecided block among Democratic voters. And much of the support for the Washington candidates is lukewarm. He may become the choice of the insiders, who don't want to support someone who bores the electorate. He generates interest from the left, such as Michael Moore and Janeane Garofalo.

The first debate is Sept. 4 and his is announcement is supposedly timed so he can enter it. With all eyes on him he would have time to peel away support that's flaking away from the other candidates anyway.
