Kerry Fading in Latest Poll


The latest Harris Poll, released today, shows Howard Dean in the lead as the preferred candidate of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents, with 21% of them expressing support for him.

That’s not surprising. What is surprising is how Sen. John Kerry, once the presumptive front-runner, is doing. Kerry pulled in a miserable 4% — putting him behind such well-known political powerhouses as Dick Gephardt (7%), Rev. Al Sharpton (6%), and Carol Moseley-Braun (6%).

Worse than Al Sharpton? Worse than Carol Moseley-Braun? Like I said, ouch.
