33. Another question...
Edited on Thu Feb-05-04 09:06 PM by Darranar
If Dean is so loved by the voting populace, which is why he is getting so much money, why is he doing so badly in the primaries?

If his campaign was grass-roots, and since he's managed to raise so much money, wouldn't the support of so many ordinary people reflect in the primaries with electoral success for Dean?
