32. But this is the thing
I've been doing petition work, and in the process have been talking to a lot of Democrats in the last two weeks. These are the kinds of people who aren't obsessed with politics but who are disgusted with the state of the country.

We are at a crucial time when many people are deciding where their vote goes. Most of them are fixated on the General Election rather than the primary. They don't care about internal Democratic politics. They don't care about the Internet, beyond spamming jokes and checking news sites. They just want to get Bush the heck out of the White House.

Eighty-five percent of these folks out of the clear blue have mentioned that they don't believe that Dean will win. This is truly coming from the grassroots. If Clark really mobilizes over the next few weeks he can win this thing. Right now Dean is ahead but he doesn't have any margin for error and his momentum could come skidding to a halt at any time.
