Palin dragging down McCain – poll
The woman that propelled John McCain back into the US presidential race is now dragging him down in the critical week before election day according to a new poll by the New York Times and CBS News. The poll showed that 59% of voters felt Sarah Palin was not prepared for the job of Vice President. This is a 9% increase on a month ago. One third of those polled indicated the Vice Presifential ticket is an important issue for them.
“While a majority viewed Ms. Palin as unqualified for the vice presidency, roughly three-quarters of voters saw Mr. Obama’s running mate, Senator Joseph R. Biden Jr. of Delaware, as qualified for the job,” the paper writes. “The increase in the number of voters who said Ms. Palin was not prepared was driven almost entirely by Republicans and independents.”
Palin was viewed as unprepared for the job by about 6 in 10 men and women alike.
It seems substance is still rated after all.
