Howard Dean is riding a rollercoaster in the New Hampshire polls.
As quickly as he sank in the surveys following his dismal third-place finish in the Iowa caucuses, Dean is rising again — so dramatically, in fact, that he is in a statistical dead heat with Sen. John Kerry in the latest MSNBC/Zogby Reuters Poll released Monday.
The three-day rolling average has Kerry with 28 percent to Dean’s 25 percent in New Hampshire’s Democratic primary on Tuesday, cutting four points from Kerry’s Sunday lead. Factoring in the poll’s four-point margin of error places the Massachusetts senator and the former Vermont governor in a statistical tie.
Retired Gen. Wesley Clark is in third place with 11 percent, followed by North Carolina Sen. John Edwards with 10 percent. Connecticut Sen. Joseph Lieberman polled at 9 percent.
Tomorrow promises to be a very interesting day.
