True, Palin doesn't get McCain any more voters necessarily (That poll mentioned above has terrible internals), but Palin does help McCain by changing the narrative and sucking all the oxygen out the 24hr news cycle. And she definitely helps raise money. Churches know how to raise money. Honestly, she's an incredible addition to the ticket -- especially for such an honorable man like John McCain. Country First!
