Poll: Palin more likeable, but Obama/Biden gets the votes

An Ipsos/McClatchy poll of undecided voters who watched Thursday's vice presidential debate found that most liked Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, but that 52 percent would have voted for Barack Obama after the debate anyway. The change was dramatic: Before the debate, those same undecided voters were leaning 56 percent to 44 percent for McCain. The day after, the numbers had tilted to Obama, 52 to 48 percent.
