Jeremy Teigen of Recreational Poli Sci crunches the numbers to see who supported Palin in 2008.

He was surprised that her support wasn't higher among gun-owners. And veterans didn't like her.
Check it out for the cool graph and ask him questions there. For more on the Palin mystique, The Monkey Cage took Douthat to task last week.
