University Studies & Pollsters Conclude Palin Helped McCain's Campaign;Did Not "Cause McCain To Lose

The hoary old leftist fable "Palin caused McCain to lose" raises its head now and then. That people could be so ignorant, willfully blind or childishly and deliberately false is another indication of the left's Palin derangement. I have collated here in one place the major university studies, polling company reports and major analysts who come to the obvious conclusion, backed by irrefutable statistics that Governor Palin was a major assistance to the McCain campaign.

NBC Poll;Sarah Palin: Strongest Vote Winning Vice Presidential Candidate in Recent History LINK

Many Republicans have long groused that former GOP presidential nominee Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., would have defeated then-Sen. Barack Obama in 2008 if the American economy hadn't collapsed less than two months before Election Day.
It turns out Vice President Joe Biden agrees with them.

"The truth of the matter is, Barack knows it, I know, had the economy not collapsed around your ears, John ... I think you probably would have won." Biden said to McCain at the Republican's annual leadership forum in Sedona, Ariz.,according to The Associated Press.   LINK


CNN did a national exit poll and one of the questions was whether McCain's selection of Sarah Palin was a factor in how they voted. 33 % said that it was not and of this group, Obama won by a 2 to 1 margin - get that? 65% to 33% an absolute slaughter. HOWEVER, 60% of those polled said that it was a factor in their vote and of this group, McCain/Palin won 56% to 42% which is landslide , numbers. Clearly, the only reason McCain did not suffer the worst defeat in history is because he was smart enough to select Sarah as his VP.
