Rasmussen Reports: The most comprehensive public opinion coverage ever provided for a presidential election. As Richard-H observed, McCain didn't need to attract more of "the base". He needed Hillary women and blue collar dems from the middle. Choosing a right wing idealogue... and a not too bright one, isn't the way to go about it. But will be interesting to see how McCain fares after his convention. Me? I think Palin's a female Dan Quayle. The right wing loonies simply don't learn.
