A precipitous drop in Sarah Palin’s approval may be helping to fuel Obama’s gains. Immediately after the convention 41% of Colorado voters said that her selection made them more likely to vote for John McCain, compared to 38% who said it made them less likely to do so. Since then there’s been a 12 point drop in her net favorability. Now just 38% say that she makes them more likely to vote for the Republican, with 47% saying they’re less likely to do so.

“Barack Obama has greatly increased his lead with independents since we last polled Colorado,” said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling. “It seems like the more voters have learned about Sarah Palin the less they’ve liked her, and that’s allowed Obama to open up the largest lead he’s shown in a PPP poll of Colorado.”
More than half (56%) of polled Colorado voters now say they are LESS likely to vote for McCain because of Palin.

Damn elitists.

They are acting like the current administration already.

on a serious note:

all you Palin fans. are you at all bothered by the fact that she has never held a press conference since she was selected as the VP? do you want to know more about her? are you concerned by the fact that we know so little about what she thinks about various issues when she could become president of the country in 6 weeks?

i really mean this. are you okay with having her be seen, and scripted, but never heard?

This whole thing is going to blow up for McCain, and I can't wait.
Maybe it's designed to " blow up for McCain"???

I think this is a legitimate concern. I do not think it can be ignored. But I am not voting on the bottom of the ticket.

But if something were to happen to the "bottom of the ticket", you'd have the top, Palin as POTUS, commander in chief. Still okay with that? For the love of god, how?

The top chose the bottom.

The top is also keeping the bottom away from the media.

The top has shown stunningly bad judgment in this respect.

The buck stops somewhere.

Politically it was a good move for what his advisors feel they needed. It may not be the move for the country, but he is running an election. Plenty of others have made political decisions for the vp positions.

It's a good point. My only beef with it is that while he's running an election now, he may soon be running the country--and the decision he made during the election may very well have critical impact on the country when the election's done.


I really would like a few McCain supporters to answer this question--which has been posed in the last few days but not answered:

Would you honestly feel comfortable with Sarah Palin as President of the United States?

I understand that the easy response is to say that we're not voting for the bottom of the ticket. But in this instance--with a 72-year-old, 4-time-cancer-stricken, broken-bodied man at the top of the ticket, it's a very real possibility that the bottom of the ticket will be the top in time. To seriously disregard that possibility is irresponsible.

Please.

Don't give me any of this "she has more executive experience" garbage. It simply isn't an answer to the question.

All McCain-Palin supporters.

Yes or no.

Would you honestly feel comfortable with Sarah Palin as President of the United States?

As I recall, that was already asked and the response was, Better her than Obama. I don't remember the thread or the respondent(s) though.
