The KCCI News Channel 8 poll, conducted by Research 2000, finds Dean leading in Iowa. The poll, conducted Aug. 25 through Aug. 27, shows that if the Iowa caucuses were held today, 25 percent of those polled would support Dean. Gephardt is second with 21 percent, Kerry is third with 16 percent and Lieberman is fourth with 12 percent. The other candidates are all in single digits.
This newest poll is a huge leap forward for Dean. In the last KCCI poll conducted June, 2003, Dean was in third place with 11 percent. Gephardt was in first place in June with 27 percent.
