  • I don't think she was the sole cause of McCain's loss, but I do think she contributed to it. I know lots of people who considered voting for McCain, but were turned off by her inexperience, her inability to speak coherently, her lies, her hypocrisy, and her "pallin' around with terrorists" bullshit.

  • Do you mean she COST John McCain the presidency? Nope. I don't think anyone could have won over Obama.

  • She certainly didn't help any, I would say she was a large factor, but certainly not the only one.

  • No McCain is a RINO (republican in name only) and he wasnt able to rally the base which is mostly conservative. He waited too long to bring someone like Sarah on board. That is what cost him the election. We should have had a much stronger candidate up there that could have made getting donations easier, and given the base more confidence in voting or showing up to vote.
