The Detroit Free Press put together a panel of voters to listen to last night’s Republican convention speeches and, much as I predicted last night, the independents were universally negative on Palin. In fact, they were more negative than the Democratic voters. The speech was clearly designed to help close the “enthusiasm gap” that has dogged the McCain campaign all summer.
Democrats should focus on Palin’s extremism, forget the personal stuff, and let women lead the attacks. From what I’ve read, Hillary Clinton has already stepped up to the plate.
