New Hampshire

(CNN) -- Howard Dean has increased his already sizable lead in New Hampshire, according to a poll released Thursday.

The survey by American Research Group found that Dean had 45 percent of the potential vote among respondents, far ahead of second-place John Kerry, whose support was at 13 percent. (Kerry blasts Bush international policy)

Dean's support was 7 percentage points higher than a poll released November 20.

Kerry has dropped 4 percentage points since that poll.

A good number of the potential voters questioned -- 15 percent -- said they remained undecided.

Wesley Clark, with 11 percent of likely voters, was the only other candidate with support in double figures. (Clark: Carving is for turkeys, not candidates)

Joe Lieberman and Dick Gephardt had 5 percent each, John Edwards had 3 percent, Dennis Kucinich had 2 percent and Al Sharpton had 1 percent.

Carol Moseley Braun did not have enough support to register.

The poll of 600 registered Democrats and undeclared voters was conducted between November 30 and December 3 and has a margin of error of plus-or-minus 4 percentage points.
