Chicks Dig McCain least according to a "poll" cited by Scott Carter, a political reporter for the Moore American and the Norman Transcript. He does an adequate job of allowing Oklahoma City based Democratic political consultant Don Hoover to call bullshit:
“Those kinds of Web surveys don’t count for much,” he said. “People are doing them because they are motivated one way or another. There’s not a chance of a random possibility.”

One wonders if those who favor McCain in Mr.Carter's "poll", especially the women, are aware Senator McCain has called his wife a "trollop" and a "cunt" in front of a bunch of people?
Three reporters from Arizona, on the condition of anonymity, also let me in on another incident involving McCain's intemperateness. In his 1992 Senate bid, McCain was joined on the campaign trail by his wife, Cindy, as well as campaign aide Doug Cole and consultant Wes Gullett. At one point, Cindy playfully twirled McCain's hair and said, "You're getting a little thin up there." McCain's face reddened, and he responded, "At least I don't plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you cunt." McCain's excuse was that it had been a long day. If elected president of the United States, McCain would have many long days.

If they were aware of it, would they be more likely, or less likely to elect such a seriously disturbed misogynist for President?

Cliff Schecter, a veteran campaign strategist and political commentator describes this incident, along with many other temper outbursts in his book, The Real McCain. In short, McCain has anger management issues and anyone that twitchy is far too dangerous to sit in the big chair.

Polls are somewhat important, but meaningless ones, not at all, as is bowling scores, cackling and cleavage. The mental stability of the Republican nominee for President is a very real concern. Is he getting help for his problem, medically or otherwise? If not, why not? Should reporters be asking these questions, or be steno graphing worthless "If you love me, check here" webpolls?
