Even those conservatives who were unexcited about McCain must be enjoying the spectacle of watching liberals’ heads spin all the way around like that poor little girl in The Exorcist (wasn’t her name Reagan?) as the the Palin Effect drives him ahead in the polls.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Republican presidential candidate John McCain has gained huge support among white women since naming Sarah Palin as his running mate and now leads Democrat Barack Obama among those voters, according to a survey published on Tuesday.
The Washington Post/ABC News poll found that much of McCain’s surge in the polls since the Republican National Convention is attributable to the shift in support among white women.
…Asked about the findings during a briefing on Monday before the poll was published, Obama campaign manager David Plouffe told a Washington Post reporter, “Well, your poll is wrong.”
The Washington Post is holy writ to these Beltway types until it brings them bad news.
