His chances were DEAD before he goofed up to pick her. If it hadn’t been for his blunders, she could have carried him to 1600. She saw the opportunity to bring her message out of Alaska and siezed the open door while it was there.

Most still had not grasped the concept it was really us against the elite establishment and not an R and D thing at that time. She knew the only reasonable way to do for the country, what she had accomplished in Alaska, was to get the boost to national attention, which she did. When the elites finally realized what they had done, they threw away the election to avoid helping her to rise to a place where their SNAFU existence would have been in joepardy.

She had carried the ticket to 49% against 42% until McCain threw the election by suspending the campaign.....The numbers dropped drastically after that.....
