Dean high, Lieberman low in New Hampshire

According to the October Franklin Pierce College poll, Dean leads his nearest rival, Kerry, by 14 points, and Lieberman trails everyone but the novelty candidates, Kucinich, Braun, and Sharpton. Yep, he's behind even Edwards.

The specifics:

The number at left is the October 2003 poll of 600 likely voters. The parenthesized number at right is the July 2003 poll of 500 likely voters.

Another interesting result from these polls: likely voters in CD2 prefer Dean in greater numbers than do voters in CD1. Any New Hampshire residents care to speculate as to why that is?
