CapeFearCadaver: SnakeLee: A national exit poll conducted by CNN asked voters whether Palin was a factor in their voting. Of those who said yes, 56% voted for McCain versus 43% for Barack Obama.

At first I thought that was just a hugely misleading statistic, but I looked it up and 60% of 2008 voters said that Palin was a factor in their voting. If that 56% number is true, then 33.6% of all votes were basically voting for Palin. That is kind of scary, actually

My parents LOVE her. Yes, it's very scary.
