I've just finished listening to Monday's edition of the Sean Hannity show, and Palin got some major kudos. During the first hour, Hannity spent roughly four minutes discussing Palin's stands on drilling issues, noting that she is often mentioned as a potential VP for McCain. Then, in the third hour, he asked big-time pollsters Scott Rasmussen and John Zogby who they would advise the candidates to select as running mates. Rasmussen said that McCain should choose Sarah Palin! (Zogby wanted Charlie Crist, and both said Obama should take VA Gov. Tim Kaine). If you want to listen to the show in the online archives,the first Palin mention is about 38 minutes into the broadcast and Rasmussen's quote is roughly one hour and 26 minutes in. So, we now have a major pollster suggesting a Palin nomination!
Also, Palin has built up a big lead in the CBS "VP Hot Sheet" poll. At the time of this writing, she has 42.02% of the vote, while second-place Charlie Crist has only 11.29%. While we targeted this poll last month when it first appeared, we lost the first week and have not targeted it since. So, the Palin win was not engineered by this site in any way.
