No. He wouldn't have won anyways. I don't think having Palin on the ticket lost him any states. Conservatives voted heavy for McCain in Indiana, because of Palin. Obama would have won it more comfortably, if not for Palin.

What exactly does that do for you if you lose a greater amount of independents?
He could have lost some Independants. But good Republican turnout was more important for the McCain camp. Palin fired up Republicans, and got people going door-to-door for McCain, something Romney or Pawlenty couldn't have done.

McCain regretted her the minute he picked her. He hates Conservatives like her.
That's a stupid thing to say.

That actually may be the most intelligent post he's ever made.
Not that McCain regretted it, but that he regretted it right away.
First of all, he chose her before anyone else knew, and knew several days in advance. If he automatically regretted her, he could easily cancel out, with no worries. Secondly, for the first month or so after Palin was selected, she gave him a chance of winning. Also, McCain doesn't hate conservatives. You can't get in his brain, so he doesn't know that.
