Node Text: Palin reassures and excites religious conservative base

Conventional wisdom holds that the conservative base of the Republican party does not fully trust John McCain to govern by conservative principles.

This can be traced back at least to the 2000 Presidential election, when McCain referred to conservative religious leaders as "agents of intolerance".

Sarah Palin, however, speaks directly to religious conservatives, in their own language. They trust her intuitively, and that trust is reflected in rising levels of support for McCain among conservatives.
