Apparently many Americans vote with their sex organs. In the latest polls, McCain leads Obama:
Many of the shifts toward McCain stem from gains among white women, voters his team hoped to sway with the pick of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his vice presidential candidate. White women shifted from an eight-point pre-convention edge for Obama to a 12-point McCain advantage now.
So while McCain is a cynical bastard for putting an unqualified woman on his ticket, he’s not stupid.

I can't be ready to declare this thing over yet by any means ; and some of these polls are just, how do they say it, “making it up” when it comes to their samples.
Obama still has a healthy lead in the electoral college, which will only increase as Palin has to speak in public without a script. Nothing to worry about, the McCain campaign can't keep her in seclusion forever.
