Rasmussen reports good news for the McCain camp:
There have been significant changes in perception of John McCain in the two days of polling since he named Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate. Since then, 49% of Republicans voice a Very Favorable opinion of McCain. That’s up six percentage points from 43% just before the announcement. Also, 64% of unaffiliated voters now give positive reviews to McCain, up ten points since naming his running mate.
All this despite Governor Palin being a relative unknown on the national scene. As a reminder, former community organizer Barack Obama’s pick of Joe Biden as a running mate was an eight point drag on their ticket.
