POLITICAL NOTEBOOK: Internet boosts Dean in Michigan; Matching up vs. Bush

POLITICAL NOTEBOOK: Internet boosts Dean in Michigan; Matching up vs. Bush: “A poll of Michigan Democrats found Dean, who has attracted thousands of supporters and millions of dollars through the Internet, led his presidential rivals by 11 percentage points among voters who would prefer to vote on the Internet in the Feb. 7 caucuses.
But among those who would rather vote in person or by mail, the former Vermont governor is tied for the lead, according to the Epic-MRA poll released Friday.
Michigan plans to allow Internet voting in its caucuses, a policy that has drawn criticism from all the presidential candidates except Dean and Wesley Clark. Several Michigan Democrats have filed a protest, arguing that the policy will put minority voters and low-income voters at a disadvantage. The challenge is pending.
Overall, the poll showed Dean with 21 percent support; Clark at 15 percent; Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts and Rep. Dick Gephardt of Missouri, both at 13 percent; and Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut at 12 percent. The remaining candidates were in the low single digits; 12 percent were undecided. “
