Iowa: Poll shows Dean, Gephardt in dead heat
http://www.wcfcourier.com/articles/2003/09/14/news/top_...

DES MOINES --- Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean and U.S. Rep. Richard Gephardt of Missouri are running a dead heat in the race to capture Iowa's Democratic caucuses, according to a Lee Enterprises poll of likely caucus-goers.

But the race, according to the poll, remains wide open. More than one-third of those surveyed said they are undecided. And more than half said they might pick a different candidate before Jan. 19, when Iowa's caucuses fire the starting gun on a sprint to the nomination.

Dean and Gephardt each received 19 percent backing from the 400 registered voters surveyed, including likely Democratic caucus-goers surveyed, including 49 independent voters who are "very likely'' to attend. U.S. Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts was third at 10 percent. The poll, conducted by Davenport-based PMR between Aug. 26 and Sept. 6 and on Sept. 10, has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.9 percent.

Both U.S. Sens. John Edwards of North Carolina and Joe Lieberman of Connecticut were the first choice of 6 percent. U.S. Sen. Bob Graham of Florida, U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich of Ohio, former U.S. Sen. Carol Moseley Braun and the Rev. Al Sharpton of New York each were supported by 1 percent of those surveyed.

1. Good News for Dean and Gephardt, But...
I'm pouring cold water over this poll, particularly, even though it shows my guy doing well. Caucuses are extremely difficult to poll accurately.
