Voters assess Democrats’ chance of beating Bush

A poll of likely voters in New Hampshire’s Democratic primary gives mixed results for former Vermont Governor Howard Dean.

The Boston Globe and WBZ-TV poll found Dean with a double-digit lead over Massachusetts Senator John Kerry. But responses were nearly tied on the question of which candidate would be strongest against President Bush in the November 2004 election. Twenty-eight percent said Dean is the strongest candidate for the general election; while 26% cited Kerry.

The Globe polled 400 Democratic and independent voters last week, as Kerry was officially announcing his candidacy.
