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.
