I still don't know how to react to this one. I pulled this off Dan Conley's http://www.danconley.com/ site. This clinches it that this race is about electability. Maybe this is the wake-up call Democrats needed.
In New Hampshire where Dean is doing so "well" and has spent the last year cozying up to voters, they took a poll with a head-to-head with Dean and Bush. Unbelievable the results, simply unbelievable... Dean is getting beat 57% to 30% in a state Al Gore lost by less than one thousand votes. What do you think our chances are with the rest of the country with a Dean nomination? Granted the poll doesn’t show other Democratic candidates versus Bush, but this definitely is a flat out reject of Mr. Frontrunner’s leadership.
It is time to stop the media coronation!
Contrast this with another poll in a swing state (PA) that shows John Kerry as the Democrat to do best against Bush.

SPIN THIS, DEANIACS
This is the most stunning poll I've seen in this election yet. In New Hampshire -- yes, home of the huge Dean primary lead -- Howard Dean is getting absolutely destroyed by George W. Bush in the latest American Research Group statewide poll. Mind you, New Hampshire is a state won twice by Bill Clinton and lost by a tiny margin by Al Gore in 2000.
Read it and weap, Democrats. There's no good explanation for this. Other than Vermonters, New Hamsphirites know Howard Dean better than anyone:
George W. Bush 57%
Howard Dean 30%
Howard Dean 67%
George W. Bush 14%
George W. Bush 94%
Howard Dean 0%
George W. Bush 63%
Howard Dean 11%
