Richardson On The Upswing

New Mexico Governor and Democratic presidential candidate Bill Richardson continues on the upswing as a result of his good debate performance and stellar fundraising effort.

The most recent New Hampshire poll, from Zogby, has Richardson surging to 10 percent from just 2% a month ago. In his commentary on the poll, John Zogby says: "Of greatest significance is the move of Bill Richardson into double-digits from merely a blip on the screen. He is now a player in all this.

Gov. Richardson is also on the move in Iowa, jumping to 7% in a Research 2000 poll of likely Iowa caucus attendees.

Clearly, as we predicted a few months ago, Richardson has broken from the lower tier pack and is showing signs of momentum that could propel him into the first tier. For now, his improved poll standing alone will be a story in an otherwise static race, enough to create some buzz and propel him higher.

If more people start seeing these commercials he's made, the upswing will DEFINITELY continue. Here's the link, in case you want to mash (embed) it...
