Two new polls show that former Vermont Governor Howard Dean is expanding his lead over Massachusetts Senator John Kerry in the New Hampshire primary.
In a Zogby poll, Dean has the support of 42 percent of those questioned while Kerry had the support of 12 percent of likely voters. Almost one in five voters is undecided.
A separate poll by the American Research Group poll gives Dean the backing of 45 percent, while Kerry had 13 percent and retired General Wesley Clark had 11 percent.
The Zogby poll of 503 Democratic and independent voters had a margin of error of 4.5 percentage points. The ARG poll of 600 likely voters had a margin of error of four percentage points.
The New Hampshire primary will be held January 27.
