Did Palin help or hurt McCain?

From David Hulen in Anchorage --

Among Republican voters, the answer appears to be a strong yes, according to a new national poll from Rasmussen Reports.

"Sixty-nine percent of Republican voters say Alaska Governor Sarah Palin helped John McCain’s bid for the presidency, even as news reports surface that some McCain staffers think she was a liability," Rasmussen writes.

A survey of 1,000 likely Republican voters on Wednesday found:

> Only 21 percent thought Palin hurt McCain.

> Ninety-one percent had a favorable impression of Palin, including 65 percent who had a "very favorable" view.

> When asked to name their top choice for president in 2012, 64 percent named Palin. (Next closest was Huckabee at 12 percent and Romney at 11 percent.)

> "Among Republicans, 66% of men and 61% of women say Palin is their choice for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012. Sixty-six percent (66%) of GOP women have a Very Favorable view of her, as do 64% of men."

Another Rasmussen poll earlier in the weekshowed Republicans happier with the choice of Palin than with their nominee for president.
