At this point, polls are meaningless (remember Kerry in ‘04 and both Obama and McCain in ‘08).
Quayle was never a charismatic candidate and in contrast to Gov. Palin, wasn't clever enough to play the media.
Gov. Palin would carry the Conservative vote and would likely bring new people to the voting booth.
One thing for sure, the opposition still seems most concerned with Gov. Palin. They must have a reason.
They are meaningless, but in SD? With two candidates with equal name ID?
