Poll: Women NOT Impressed by McCain's Choice of Sarah Palin

  Read here on AP Wire

Most US women are unimpressed by Republican John McCain's choice of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate, and have thrown their weight behind the Democratic ticket, a national poll showed on Wednesday.

Six in 10 women voters see McCain's choice as a POLITICAL decision rather than one based on Palin's experience, the poll conducted by the Garin-Hart-Yang Research Group showed.

A majority of the 800 women polled - 56 percent - said they were put off by Palin's legislative record and her position on moral issues.

A total of 52 percent of women voters polled said they would vote for the Democratic ticket of Obama and Joe Biden, while 41 percent said they w1ould back McCain and Palin.
