Convention bounce?:

Poll: Convention lifts McCain over Obama - USATODAY.com

Among the findings:

• Before the convention, Republicans by 47%-39% were less enthusiastic than usual about voting. Now, they are more enthusiastic by 60%-24%, a sweeping change that narrows a key Democratic advantage. Democrats report being more enthusiastic by 67%-19%.

• Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, a national unknown before McCain chose her for the ticket 10 days ago, draws a strong reaction from voters on both sides. Now, 29% say she makes them more likely to vote for McCain, 21% less likely.

Obama's choice of Delaware Sen. Joe Biden as running mate made 14% more likely to vote for the Democrat, 7% less likely.

• McCain's acceptance speech Thursday received lower ratings than the one Obama gave a week earlier: 15% called McCain's speech "excellent" compared with 35% for Obama.

(it's really ironic how Palin is everything the Republican attack ads have accused Obama of being)

an empty celebrity who gives a good speech but has no substance at all, someone who appeals to guilt -- racial guilt, now in Palin's case, sexist guilt -- and little else, and that she's totally undeserving of the position she's in.

That's all a matter of opinion. Saying that she is "totally undeserving" is a bit much. She's run a city. She's run a state. She does have more executive experience than the other 3 guys combined. She may not have a 20+ year history in Washington, but she is an experienced, proven politician.

Can't you see that's EXACTLY why she's popular with certain segments of the public...because she is "totally undesrving" - people love a come-from-nowhere story. They generally do not like long serving politicians like John McCain and Joe Biden. This is the year of the new comer - either Obama or Palin. They are the story. McCain and Biden are on the sidelines. Why can't most of you understand that?????
