Two new polls indicate a possible shift in the Democratic presidential race.

A New Hampshire poll by WHDH-TV and Suffolk University says Massachusetts Senator John Kerry’s support has risen in New Hampshire, though he still trails Howard Dean by 6%. Kerry’s support now stands at 19% of respondents to the polls, up from 17%. Dean’s support in the early primary state slipped one point to 25%.

Meanwhile in an Iowa poll, Dean trails behind Missouri Congressman Dick Gephardt. The survey for a Des Moines TV station by New Jersey-based Survey USA finds Gephardt leading the race with 27% support; Dean has 22%. Kerry is farther behind with 15%.
