Here is more evidence that it is Sarah Palin, not the economy, that has sunk the straight talk express. It is a (sadly small) group of undecided voters who were primarily leaning towards McCain two months ago, but now have almost completely switched their allegiance to Obama. The reason?
"Widespread antagonism toward Obama in mid August gave way in September to overwhelming horror over McCain picking Palin as his vice presidential nominee. At the last session last week, most were scoffing at McCain's constant talk of Joe the Plumber, still calling Palin unqualified, divisive and grating, and acknowledging that Obama has grown on them."
Is this the mass repudiation of simpleminded social conservatism we have waited for? Time will tell.
