While in Colorado Springs, the Alaska governor sat down for an interview with influential “Focus on the Family” founder James Dobson, who has long been critical of McCain but said in August that the selection of Palin as the Arizona senator’s running mate makes him more likely to vote for the GOP ticket.

No word yet on when the interview will air. Can Palin rally enough of the GOP’s conservative Christian base to compensate for Obama’s increasing popularity among independents? The math doesn’t seem to be there, but a surge in evangelical turnout could help Palin’s stock in future elections. If the middle collapses for McCain, however, will Palin be seen as having narrowcasted herself as a Christian candidate, just like Huckabee did during the primaries? That could do major damage to her future presidential prospects.
