Hopefully it won't be long before news outlets stop doing online polls, considering their abject uselessness. To help further this end, and to let someone know, ...well, something... they may not have known... maybe... here are some polls to visit and vote in.
Considering that the whole night was devoted to her for the sake of Republicans, this ought to be at least 65% favorable to her. But she's not even breaking 50% at CNN.
Go here, vote, you can still win these vital contests!
CNN: How do you rate Republican VP choice Sarah Palin's convention speech?
MSNBC: Was VP pick Sarah Palin's speech effective in introducing herself and boosting John McCain's campaign?
(This one offers two negative options, and the positive doesn't address her actual skills, experience, etc.)
CBS: Has the media been fair on Sarah Palin?
(A gross false dichotomy if there ever was one! Of course, it's the
Cronkite Tiffany Couric Network!)
Smurfs were winning in all these polls as of late last night (11:30PM Pacific time), but its not true now. Freepers must stay up late.

Okay, looks like CBS changed their poll question, asking instead to grade her. When I last looked, the fairness question showed most respondents saying she has been treated fairly. Hmmm... not the result they wanted?
I'm of the opinion that any way one can express an opinion in a forum that might be read by those troglodytes known as "Undecided Voters" is worth doing. Even a silly poll like this might let someone know that a good percentage of people think "X." Somebody might be influenced by it. And any evolutionary scientist will tell you that any increase in your advantage, however small, adds up over large time spans or huge populations.
Meh? Can't hurt.
