US women voters turned off by Palin's pick: poll
ST PAUL, Minnesota (AFP) Women voters remain unswayed by the Republican choice of anti-abortion, devout Christian Sarah Palin for vice president, according to a new poll released Wednesday.
White House hopeful John McCain electrified his party's conservative base by naming Palin, a 44-year-old mother of five and Alaska governor, as his running mate on Friday.
But 52 percent of voters polled in a survey for the women's activist group Emily's List said they would vote for the Democrat ticket of Barack Obama and his VP choice Joseph Biden, against 41 for the Republicans.
"If John McCain thought putting Sarah Palin on the ticket would be a game changer, he may have been right but not in the way he intended," said the group's president Ellen Malcolm.
"Senator McCain has seriously misjudged women voters if he thinks he can win them over simply by putting a woman on the ticket," she said.
"Women voters take their votes seriously and the more they learn about Governor Palin, the less likely they are to support the McCain-Palin ticket."
The poll, carried out by random dialing of 800 women on Sunday and Monday, shows that 50 percent of women voters felt McCain picked Palin out of political expediency and not because he believes she has the experience to do the job.
Only 29 percent said he had picked her to run in the November 4 elections because he believed she was qualified to be vice president.
And when asked which ticket had the most experience to run the country, 52 percent opted for the Democrats compared to 37 percent for the Republicans.

Which just proves there are no devout Christians on Emily’s List. I would much rather have my name written in the Book of Heaven than Emily’s List.

.....”nd when asked which ticket had the most experience to run the country, 52 percent opted for the Democrats compared to 37 percent for the Republicans”....
That about sums up some pretty damn indisputable proof of a tainted poll.
We’ll wait for the Nov 4th poll and see what’s really true thank you.
Yeah. Gee, I wonder if they just called the women on their lists.
Survey taken over the weekend with shut-ins that would answer the phone and before her speech...
I was just thinking that one benefit of the Palin pick is that the Obama people believe they can pick off some southern states like maybe Georgia because they think Bobb Barr might get between 5-10 percent of the vote spliting the non-Obama vote. The Palin pick makes that less likely.
Tell me, why don't we do a poll on NRA members to see how they like Obambi?
Oh, but AFP is a bunch of "Frogs" anyhow.
Well, now we know how the lbgt baby killers will vote
My wife must be an oddball then because Sarah Palin impressed her with her acceptance speech last night.
This poll was conducted pre-speech when the MSM feeding frenzy was at its worst. I would imagine a new poll would show MUCH different results.
Bull Moose Puckey!!!!
Usually in life you’d say you just can’t make this up...of course in this case I guess you can...hilarious.
What is Emily’s List?
LOL. I just did a poll of “Conservatives of Marina Del Rey” (where I work).
100% of those polled think BO is an unaccomplished idiot (all 4 of us).
Now, where do I get to publish these results and grab the media spotlight?
And they only found 52% ???
Duck, it's about to hit the fan for nObie.
I’m astounded that 41% of Emily’s list hags will vote GOP.....it’s usually 85-15!!!!
