Video May Help Kerry

A Democracy Corps poll shows the release of the Osama bin Laden video is more likely -- by 46% to 36% -- to remind people that bin Laden hasn't been caught and remains a threat to the United States rather than give them positive feelings about President Bush as a fighter of terrorism.

Update: The AP reports Dick Cheney is using this poll to claim Kerry polled the issue "to find out what he should say about this tape of Osama bin Laden."

Update II: The NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll finds the reverse about the video message. "About 24% said it made them more likely to back Mr. Bush, while 12% said it made them more likely to support Mr. Kerry."
