John McCain’s selection of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate has made a huge difference in her home state.

McCain now leads his Democratic opponent nearly two-to one, 64% to 33%, according to a new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of voters in the state. It is the first poll taken since Palin, who is extremely popular in Alaska, joined the GOP national ticket (crosstabs available for Premium Members).

It was never gonna happen. That landslide figure is the highest of any state... my guess is Utah would come in a close second!

do we keep this Senate seat? If so, can we get Stevens to resign, given that he is a disgrace?

If the number of Palin hit pieces is any indication, then it sure appears that the media has talked with every one of that 33%...some of them twice.

I haven’t had this much fun since....well, it’s been a LONG time.

And Idaho will be BIG. Remember Sarah was born there and attended college.

Maybe we can Torricelli him and just proclaim someone else is running for Senate in his stead even though he won the primary.

That’s nice, but until Alaska gets more electorates, it won’t add up to much.

Does the 33% include journalists who are in Alaska “investigating” Sarah Palin’s record?

The McCain List.

Two GOP states line up solidly behind McCain after a period of Obama-wooing.

As you can imagine, Governor Palin helps a lot - especially in Alaska! She has an approval rating of 72%, with McCain at 71%.

Alaska
McCain 64%
Obama 33%

North Dakota
McCain 55%
Obama 41%

CNN/Time just released a registered voters poll in NH: O51, M45. FWIW...

Mac hasn’t campaigned there in a while. He’s going back soon.

i really really hope we can take the state back this election (i know it only has 4 electoral votes but it is the principle of the thing)

It’s close - but I am hopeful about NH. They love the original maverick up there.

If the Democrats continue to reveal themselves for what they are, the entire USA will be McCain 64%, Obama 33%--or better--by November.

The wholesome, decent, truthful, puissant Sarah Palin has served as a catalyst to cause the Democrats to reveal just how ugly and depraved they are. Truth is the Democrats' worst enemy.

A lot of the initial attacks on Palin were over the top. I think any future smears will fall on deaf ears. The McCain camp can just say there goes the Far Left again.

Mac and Palin show the world that they are true agents of change by throwing Ted Stevens and Don Young under the bus. Yeah, it stinks to lose another Senate seat, but Ted Stevens and Don Young are toxic to the GOP brand.
