From the Associated Press:

_[P]residential hopefuls John McCain and Barack Obama are targeting hook-and-bullet voters [in Minnesota] . . . . [T]he campaigns are [also] mobilizing blaze-orange brigades in battleground states including Pennsylvania, Ohio and Wisconsin. . . .

Both candidates touched on their recreational backgrounds in interviews with Field & Stream magazine published Wednesday. . . .

Nationally, McCain held a 36 percentage point lead over Obama among gun owners in an AP-Yahoo News poll conducted Sept. 5-15. Among those who don’t own guns, Obama was up 45 percent to 41 percent. . .

Four in 10 gun owners polled said the Palin pick made them more likely to support the McCain ticket, a much higher rate than among those who don’t have firearms._

What do you think?

Will Sarah Palin help solidify sportsmen behind McCain? And if so, will the sportsman’s vote be enough to put McCain in the Oval Office?
