The Hiller Instinct: 7News/Suffolk Poll: Decision '04
With time running out before tomorrow's primary, John Kerry is running away from his rivals here and now holds the biggest lead he has had over Howard Dean since we began polling in New Hampshire last March almost a year ago.
Dean is dropping again, but looks like he'll be able to hold onto second, while there's a real race for third.
Our exclusive overnight poll has Kerry winning the support of 38 percent of likely democratic primary voters here and Dean 17 percent, an overwhelming 21-point spread -- too big to make up in a day.
Wesley Clark with 10 percent is just wide ahead of John Edwards at nine percent making the race for third place wide open with 18 percent still undecided in our overnight poll.
Our daily difference shows the latest movement Kerry up two, Dean down three and another sign of how tight the race is becoming for the bronze medal, Clark minus one, Edwards plus one.
There are also fewer undecideds here today, two percent less than there were yesterday. Those undecideds will decide which candidates leave New Hampshire tomorrow night with momentum.
John Kerry is virtually sure to be one, Howard Dean needs a miracle to be one and either John Edwards or Wesley Clark may provide the surprise of the night by beating expectations and getting the bump that comes with that.
