Daily Tracking Poll Summary: Kerry Surges in New Hampshire


MANCHESTER, NH -- John Kerry continues to surge in New Hampshire. He is now within striking distance of Howard Dean. Kerry trails Dean by only 3% (Dean 23%-Kerry 20%). Kerry is within the margin of error of 4.9%

Dean continues to be strongest in the West/North Region containing five counties close to the Vermont border. He also shows strength among young voters and union households.

Kerry continues to show strength among older voters (55 years and over), as well as from the two largest counties in the Granite state- Rockingham and Hillsborough.

Wesley Clark suffered a four point overnight drop due to lack of visibility from Iowa. He maintains relative strength among veteran households, male voters, and ages 35-54 years.

The undecided total has spiked to a whopping 26% - one of the highest levels in months due to former Clark voters, now undecided, who are sizing up the rest of the field. In addition, undecided voters topped 30% among categories like independents and West/North Region voters - two areas of Clark’s strength a day ago.

The survey results will be broadcast on WHDH-TV and are posted on both the Suffolk University website (www.suffolk.edu) and the WHDH-TV website (www.whdh.com). For more detailed information, David Paleologos can be reached at 781-290-9310.
