Maybe I’m alone in this, but I’m a conservative who thinks Palin lost.
Perhaps I am being overly dismissive of the comman voter’s mental faculties. However, as I’ve read various conservative pundits pointing out all the ways Biden lied, dissembled, misrepresented the truth, or otherwise distorted the factual record, I’m left with the thought that most people don’t read conservative pundits, and won’t take the time to look up what Obama actually said before.
This year, it seems like:
1) either you are already in the tank for Obama, so you don’t care about what he actually said or did, you just want to end the Republican hold on the White House, or
2) you aren’t in the tank for Obama, so you will be ignored by approximately 90% of the media and 70% of the voting population.
I don’t think this election will be decided on facts whatsoever. If facts mattered, voters wouldn’t be able to get past Obama’s association with terrorists, corruption, lack of executive experience, and lack of personal accomplishments.
Since Obama is still leading in all the polls (and widening the margin in some), I can only conclude that the thought process of most voters right now is:
“Sarah Palin lies every time she opens her mouth because she is a Republican, and isn’t really a woman because she didn’t abort her child with Down’s Syndrome.”
I don’t think she did anywhere near enough in the debate to overcome that prejudice.
