PRINCETON, NJ -- John McCain's 6 percentage-point bounce in voter support spanning the Republican National Convention is largely explained by political independents shifting to him in fairly big numbers, from 40% pre-convention to 52% post-convention in Gallup Poll Daily tracking.

In spite of the bleating from the leftists, the Palin nod must needs be recognized as brilliant.

Maybe. We still have nearly 2 months to go. Don't get ahead of ourselves. The winds of politics change by the minute.

True, we have to keep an eye on those battle ground states, thats why I think independents and females turning to McCain is great. those states have a high number of evangelical voters and an older voter base.

It would seem at the moment it's McCain/Palin's race to loose. But let's not chill the bubbly yet. wink2.gif

As I've repeated before in a different thread, nation-wide polls are worthless. You'd get a better idea of how Palin has affected the viability of McCain's ticket by seeing how much change the choice caused in the battle ground states (like Colorado, New Mexico, Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Iowa).

"You say that it is your custom to burn widows. Very well. We also have a custom: when men burn a woman alive, we tie a rope around their necks and we hang them. Build your funeral pyre; beside it, my carpenters will build a gallows. You may follow your custom. And then we will follow ours." -Sir Charles Napier

The selection of Palin changed the race really big time.
What's to watch now is how the Democrats will try to destroy her, Obama is up to it now.
When was the last time a Presidential candidate is attacking the opponents VP instead????

Good point ... you know Obama is sweating bullets ... especially with his choice for VP verses Palin.  I really like McCain and was my choice from the beginning, but also agreed that Obama was the lesser of the two evils (him or Hilary) ... and Obama being president would not have bothered me as bad as if Hilary was .... but now that Palin verses Biden for VP .... there is no way I want Obama in office .... I think Biden will hurt him more than he has realized!!

I would rather live my life as if there is a God, and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't, and die to find out there is.

I'll enter the Republican ground saying: Biden is a moron. Terrible pick for Obama. Palin, as I've said, I actually like. I'm still for Obama, being the liberal I am, but there is a possibility I'll change to McCain.

Why?

Because I never disliked McCain. I love Palin. I can't stand to look at Biden, that little phony SOB. I hate that guy with a passion.

What keeps me from saying I am voting for McCain without a doubt?

I love Obama.

WOW.. what a dilema you have now!!  Good luck with your decision... I am glad at least that I don't love Obama... so McCain/Palin is definitely the choice for me!

It's definitely a strategy that's pulled the Republican ticket back from the edge of certain defeat.

Should be an interesting election.

Yeah, I been telling myself Good Luck for days now. LOL. I swear I never thought, being the staunch lib I am ('cept on abortion), that I would consider not voting for Obama.

Just the thought of that plagiarist Biden taking office disgusts me.

AROCES, you may have a point on this one at least.  tongue.gif

To me .. McCain isn't a die hard conservative... he rides the fence on some issues and is open minded and I that is what I really like about him.

I would rather live my life as if there is a God, and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't, and die to find out there is.
