An Alternate View

Which may be even more disturbing (for Kerry) than Ellisblog's analysis. A Wisconsin reader emails as follows:

The Drudge Report had nothing to do with Edwards' near victory in Wisconsin. I'm a Wisconsin voter and I have talked with dozens of Wisconsin and Illinois Democrats about Edwards and Kerry. Noone believed the story about Kerry's infidelity and furthermore they weren't interested in the story. Many of them hadn't even heard about it. The overwhelming sentiment is one of not feeling strongly positive about Kerry as a candidate. Most begin the conversation with "well, I guess I'm going to vote for Kerry". So when an alternative as attractive as Edwards gets their attention, they easily give up their support of Kerry.
