|If Wesley Clark decides to enter the presidential race, he could end up in relatively strong shape in national polls, according to a CNN-USA Today-Gallup survey.
The retired Army general gets 10 percent support of registered Democrats and voters who lean Democratic in the poll released Friday. Nine Democrats are seeking the party's nomination.
Overall, the national survey found four candidates bunched at the top of the field -- Rep. Dick Gephardt of Missouri at 16 percent, Howard Dean at 14 percent, Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut at 13 percent and Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts at 12 percent.
Those numbers were within the margin of error of plus or minus 5 percentage points.
Carol Moseley Braun, Sen. Bob Graham of Florida and Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina each had 5 percent. Al Sharpton was at 3 percent and Rep. Dennis Kucinich of Ohio was at 2 percent. Twelve percent were undecided in the poll of 407 Democratic or Democratic-leaning registered voters conducted Monday through Wednesday.
