My guess is that voter turnout will be high for this election in the United States. Prior to Palin being chosen for VP, we had a very motivated group of Democrats who love Obama and will turn out in droves to vote for him. Now we have a group of very motivated Republicans who love Palin (sorry, this ain’t about McCain) and will turn out in droves to support that ticket. The choices are very different, very clear. The fact that both sides love their candidates will push more people to the polls.
This is good for democracy.
(What’s not good for democracy is a political spectrum that blends into one… I’ll let you guess what country I’m referring to.)
