Americans: When going into a presidential election, does a person's pick for vice president have any bearing on your decision?

Somewhat, especially since I don't care for either candidate.

It can. I think that the "right" VP candidate can push an undecided voter to decide. If someone doesn't have a clear preference for a presidential candidate, but sees his/her governor in the VP spot, they are likely to cast a vote to see their governor as VP.

Picking the "wrong" VP candidate can alienate voters that were leaning toward a presidential candidate. If a candidate picks an absolute loser for their running mate, it tends to reflect on their abilities to make sound decisions, and can also keep people from voting for the candidate whose terrible VP choice would become president should he die...

For McCain this year I think it'll be vital for his chances of becoming President.
It could make the republican ticket more appealing to far right-wingers, or middle of the road people.

I think it's huge for Obama as well. He's a half term Senator running for President- - he's going to need a VP that can make up for his lack of experience...

Not really. I never thought about it, actually. ^^;
Am I the only one who sees Dick Cheney hunting when I hear this question?

It never has in the past, but that isn't to say it couldn't in the future.

One of my old teachers LOVED McCain. He was campaigning for him.... until he picked Palin. He was furius.
