The Palin effect helps explain why Sen. McCain is now even with Sen. Barack Obama in the head-to-head race. With eight weeks until Election Day, the Journal survey found a dead heat: 46% of registered voters favour Sens. Obama and Joe Biden, and 45% favour the McCain-Palin ticket. The lift, if it grows, could also help other Republicans, particularly in close Senate races in the South.
