Topic: Would John McCain picking Tim Pawlenty as his running mate make Minnesotans more or less likely to vote for the Arizona senator?
Results: 16% more likely, 20% less likely, 62% not much difference
Analysis: Fellow journalists, can you please stop saying that Pawlenty would help McCain win Minnesota, at least until there is a shred of evidence to support the notion? Pawlenty is a reasonably popular governor -- his approval rating was 54% in that same poll -- but the people of Minnesota aren't clamoring for him to be vice president. The case for Pawlenty is that he is an energetic Washington outsider with solid conservative credentials, not that he would help McCain win Minnesota.
