Williamstown, MA, United States, 2008/10/02 - In survey results released today by Fidelity Independent Adviser and Dion Money Management, 62% of respondents think that Palin is the better Vice Presidential candidate, while 37% side with Biden.
“We surveyed thousands of subscribers and clients through our election video,” noted Don Dion, president of Dion Money Management. Dion’s election video was released recently, and can be viewed for free at Dion's website. The election survey includes two questions: “who will win the 2008 presidential election” and “who is the better Vice Presidential candidate”.
