Palin-mania Spreading to Canada?  

Is Sarah Palin's rousing support from the right-wing electorate spilling over into Canada? Intrade's Political Prediction Markets on the upcoming Canadian Federal election would suggest so.

John McCain has seen his chances surge by 35% from 39.0 on the morning he announced the Palin pick to 52.8 as of 7:00AM EST today.

The Conservative Party of Canada's chances to win the October 14th election have jumped by 25% from 65.0 to 81.5 over the same time. The Liberal Party of Canada is now trading at an election-cycle low of 18.5.
