Senator Kerry has now opened a 10 point lead on his nearest challenger in the latest New Hampshire poll. In third place is Senator Lieberman of Connecticut. The second and third place candidates are tied with Kerry when their numbers are combined. The poll was based on responses from 600 likely New Hampshire voters. About 25-29% of the voters still have not made up their minds.
In Iowa, Rep. Dick Gephardt leads Senator Kerry, who is in second place.
This is very good news for Senator Kerry's campaign. If he wins in New Hampshire it could knock out some of the other candidates, especially the ones who only have regional followings.
