More Americans would cast ballots for Republican Sarah Palin than for Democrat Joe Biden if they were able to vote for a vice president independent of their presidential choice, a U.S. poll released Tuesday found.

A CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll of 1,022 adults taken Sept. 5-7 found that, if voters were allowed to vote just for president in November, the result would be a statistical tie between Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain, at 49 percent and 48 percent, respectively. The poll's margin of error was 3 percent.

In a hypothetical separate vote just for vice president, Palin, governor of Alaska, beat Biden, the head of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, by 53 percent to 44 percent, the survey showed.

Obama scoffed at the Republican duo's claims they are "original mavericks" who would stand up for hard-pressed voters on the MSNBC news channel on Monday.

"They are not telling the truth," he said. "When you have somebody who was for a project being presented as being against it, then that stretches the bounds of spin into new areas."

Obama was responding to Palin's boast that she had intervened to kill a controversial federally-funded "bridge to nowhere," a project she initially supported.
