Pollster Predicted Palin VP Pick

Saturday, 30 Aug 2008 03:01 PM

David E. Johnson, CEO of Strategic Vision, LLC accurately predicted the presidential nomination of Arizona Senator John McCain in 2007 on POTUS Radio when all political experts had written McCain’s obituary.

Johnson also predicted that Alaska Governor Sarah Palin would be McCain’s running mate in March 2007.

Johnson reiterated that Palin would be the candidate following Barack Obama’s selection of Joseph Biden as his running mate. Johnson based his predictions upon polling done by Strategic Vision, LLC in key battleground states and his own political expertise of over twenty years.

“Based upon our polling in key battleground states in 2007 and early 2008, all indicators pointed to John McCain as the only plausible Republican presidential nominee,” said David E. Johnson, CEO of Strategic Vision, LLC. “Our polling showed that McCain was the second choice of the other candidate’s supporters particularly in Florida which really made McCain’s nomination possible.

Our polling in 2008 have shown that Barack Obama underperforms among female voters particularly in the states of Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin that provides an opening for Senator McCain,” continued Johnson.

“Additionally, John McCain has a unique opportunity to present the future of the Republican Party in his vice presidential selection. All of this indicated a strong dedicated conservative that would be outside of the box and Sarah Palin headed that list along with her appeal to social and fiscal conservatives and her moving life story.

Strategic Vision polling in the key battleground states of Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Florida, and non-traditional battleground states such as New Jersey indicate that 25% to 35% of Hillary Clinton supporters will not vote for Barack Obama and might consider voting for John McCain based upon his running mate.

Johnson is a veteran Republican pollster and strategist. He worked on Bob Dole’s 1988 Presidential Campaign and has overseen numerous campaigns across the nation.
