Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean has gained 10 points in the Democratic horse race over the last two months, and is now tied for second among the list of nine Democratic contenders for their party's presidential nomination.
As recently as early June 2003, Dean was getting only 5% of the projected vote of registered Democrats when they were asked whom they would be most likely to support as the Democratic presidential nominee. Then, by mid-June, Dean's percentage of the vote was up to 7%, then to 11% in July, and now is at 15% in our most recent CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll completed Aug. 6.
Support for other leading candidates has moved in the opposite direction.
