ARG poll: Edwards surging in SC
While Edwards' internal poll was obviously optimistic, the latest American Research Group poll shows that he is clearly showing momentum in South Carolina, with Clark hot on his heels:
Undecided 42 (48)Lieberman, as usual, is hemorrhaging support.
Meanwhile, Gephardt is trumpeting an internal poll showing him with an increasing lead over Dean in Iowa. However, the internals haven't been released (which is always suspicious). From Gephardt's pollster:
"Gephardt now has a significant, seven-point lead over Dean, 24 percent to 17 percent. This represents an eight-point shift in Gephardt’s favor since July, when Dean held a slight, one-point advantage. Kerry remains in the third position, while Edwards and Clark lead the pack of single-digit candidates. Lieberman continues his decline among Iowa voters, losing about half of his support since July."Meanwhile in New Hampshire, a Suffolk University poll finds that:
When asked, “if the Democratic Primary election for President were held today, toward whom would you lean,” 26% of likely New Hampshire Democratic voters selected Dean, while just 17% chose Kerry. Clark, who has opened most political observer’s eyes, polled 10%, passing seven existing Democratic Presidential candidates.No internals are provided.
