Palin not a hit with undecideds

August 30th, 2008, 9:34pm by Sam Wang

Via Andrew Sullivan: a new Rasmussen poll says that among undecided voters, 6% say it would make them more likely to vote for McCain, 31% said less likely, 49% said no impact, and 15% said not sure. In the same survey, 59% of undecideds said Palin was unready to be president; 6% said she was. The same survey indicates that McCain’s existing supporters seem to like her.

Also, the McCain campaign seems to be learning only now about some major problems (update: it sounds serious). Are they getting into Thomas Eagleton territory? Criticism from the right: Ramesh Ponnuru, Charles Krauthammer, David Frum.
