Oct. 2 – VP Debates in the STL – Biden will clearly outshine Palin. This, however, will serve to further endear many people to Palin. In fact, many will actually comment that they felt sorry for her up there, that she was out of her league. Despite this, we will see yet another favorable bump in the polls for her ticket. Why? I can’t quite pin down why, but after the last week and a half of paying attention to the way in which many of her supporters say or imply, “I trust her,” (though I’m doubtful most had even heard of her up until 3 weeks ago) I’m inclined to chalk up my prediction mostly to inherent human irrationality.
