Matt Drudge linked to this

Matt Drudge linked to this Time article about a poll by former Clinton pollster Mark Penn which suggests that the Wellstone pep rally hurt Democrats not only in Minnesota, but nationally. Penn found that 68% of voters knew about the memorial service, and a remarkable 67% of independents said it made them less likely to vote for a Democrat. Even more important, however, is that 65% of respondents said that the Democrats have not been supportive enough of the war on terror. So much for the theory, apparently prevalent among Democrats and their supporters, that they lost because they failed to take on President Bush aggressively enough.
