If John McCain wins the election, is it going to be largely because of Sarah Palin?

Last time I checked, the majority of Americans do.. I mean, I can't even vote, and I care about who's going to end up running our country.

As for the question, I would say yes. Not only is she a woman, which will appeal to female voters, but she's pretty down to earth, not to mention smart. And she looks like Tina Fey.. not that it matters. Haha.
I wouldn't consider McCain at all if it weren't for her. Bringing her into the campaign was a smart move on his part.

No one, but many care about the election.

And I think yes. If he wins it will be because some guys voted with their dick. Of course, some girls might vote for Obama because he's attractive, so maybe those votes balance each other out.

The Green Party should have run their 35 year old female candidate instead of the one they picked, she would have stolen a few random votes from guys with no opinion on anything but women's looks.

Palin, McCain, Obama and Biden will all be factors that will affect the outcome of the election. Another factor is the Dem strategy of running against GWB again...

I think it will be in spite of her.

I think she's really helped the campaign. Lots of people tuned in to see her and tuned into McCain. Polling indicates that 29% are more likley to vote McCain, while 21% are less likely- - a net positive so far.

Politicians usually try to appeal to the far left/right during the primaries and to the moderates after they've secured their party's nomination. Palin just seems very far right.

I just wanted to say for the record that, historically, women do not vote for women just because they are women. Credentials matter. I hope the trend continues no matter who is elected.

One of McCain's problems was that he wasn't viewed as a conservative by the far righties. Palin addresses that concern.

What history are you referring to? We haven't had that many women make the attempt before. I would argue that lots of women wanted Hillary to run for President back in 2000 and 2004- - what credentials got her the support of those women?

Palin would most likely bring in alot of votes, he might not normally get with a different running mate

But he already secured the nomination. Most far righties got behind him because they knew it was McCain or Obama.

To the far righties, there isn't much difference. Many of them would stay home rather than support a "RINO" like McCain...

Do you mean the extreme right that is socially conservative and fiscally conservative, or the traditional GOPers that were abandoned by their own party?

The extreme right will vote for McCain because of "moral" issues, but the traditional GOP/Ron Paul supporters, from what I've read in some blogs dislike and distrust Obama, but hate McCain with a burning passion. A few of them still seem to support Obama because of the war.



13 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 9/9/08 - 12:55:28 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't know any conservatives that would support Obama...
13 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 9/9/08 - 12:56:09 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, really after the rallies and such the vp doesn't play a big role. It's going to come down more so to policy.

Single-issue anti-war voters, some are conservative.

Have you ever heard Kiki's ramblings? I would consider her in many ways very right wing, yet she is grudgingly choosing Obama over McCain, I think. Or maybe she is writing in Ron Paul for her and all her friends.

13 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 9/9/08 - 1:33:04 AM EST (GMT-5)
God I hope not

If he wins he won't have to thank Palin he'd better thank God because that would be a miracle. She may be a big topic in the news but she isn't going to make America forget that it's still in the middle of an unpopular war or that the economy is in decline or that gas still costs an arm a leg and your firstborn child. Swing voters still aren't going to blame anyone but the party that's been in power for the last 8 years. McCain sill doesn't have a snowballs chance in hell.

Kiki doesn't seem to be a conservative at all.

He's polling really well for a guy that doesn't stand a chance...

I'm a registered Republican, and definitely lean more to the right than the left. I just don't agree with the current administration. I'm a Constitutional Republican, or a Libertarian Republican. A Ron Paul Republican.

Oh but yeah I will probably grudgingly vote for Obama, because McCain is insane. I was going to write in Ron Paul but my husband said that's essentially a vote for McCain so I will most likely vote for Obama. He's ultra liberal though, there are some things I am vehemently opposed to in his platform. But he wants to leave Iraq and go to Afghanistan to find Al Queda, which is what I think needs to happen, and I think he'd be better fiscally as well. So I'll try to forget that he voted FOR partial birth abortions
