well it seems to me as if the palin factor has kicked in and started winning the republicans plenty of clinton votes. Why this should be given the massive difference in politics I dont know

Is it only me who is terrified of the mccain/palin ticket running the country
Dont worry, according to the same polls that had McCain narrowly beating Obama last week, the post convention bounce is fading, and the notion that McCain will carry on with Bush's policies is coming back.

I don't think Palin was ever going to win over Clinton supporters - as I said here a while back, her pick may help rejuvenate the Republicans, but I can't see her bringing any Democrats over.
