Flemington, NJ, November 10, 2008 – A new national study among 306 self-reported Democrats, Republicans and Independents revealed that after viewing segments of a CNN news report, the majority of Democrats and Independents believe there was some type of power struggle between John McCain and Sarah Palin.
The study was conducted by HCD Research during November 8-9, to obtain Americans’ perceptions of a CNN news report which claimed that there was a power struggle between John McCain and Sarah Palin during the campaign. To view believability curves and detailed results go to: www.mediacurves.com.
Among the Findings:
Do you think there was a struggle for power between Sarah Palin and John McCain during the 2008 Presidential Election?
