I think the pollsters are failing to realize that a good deal of conservatives change their party affiliation to independent in protest of the Republicans "Democrat-lite" agenda. The polls would be more informative if they asked if the new supporters of McCain/Pailn considered themselves to be liberal, centrist, or conservative.

“The polls would be more informative if they asked if the new supporters of McCain/Pailn considered themselves to be liberal, centrist, or conservative”

From the article: “Among what Ms. Saad calls “pure independents” — those who say they lean neither liberal nor conservative — Mr. McCain’s support nearly doubled after the convention, to 39% from 20%.”
