The Vox Box

No surprise here

Only four in every ten Americans believe Palin has enough experience to be vice president, according to an ABC poll taken Friday. Two-thirds say the same about Biden.

Some other interesting tidbits the survey showed:
-8 in 10 Repulbicans and 4 in 10 independents say their confidence in McCain's decision-making abilities has increased because of his choosing Palin. 6/10 Democrats say their confidence has decreased.
-50% have a favorable view of Palin. 54% look favorably on Biden.
-Conservatives, Republicans, and white evangelicals are 32% more likely to vote for McCain because of Palin.

How has Palin's VP nomination affected your view of McCain? Was his choice a good one?

This blog's mission was to give students an opportunity to publish their voices. The Vox Box and the Vox wrapped up in June 2009, but you can follow former staffers' new blog at
