It looks like it's coming back to normal levels. I actually think the speech helped, however lackluster in delivery. It was a mellow, centrist speech and low-information voters, who haven't been paying attention to how he has waged his campaign so far, would have liked it. My guess is that Palin will electrify the Christianist base but make Florida much harder. A far right Christianist who believes in the end-times and whose pastor was first inspired by Jews For Jesus is not a great sell in Boca.
