Joe the Plumber told Glenn Beck that he felt "dirty" after spending time with McCain on the campaign trail. The thing that really upset Wurzelbacher was the $700 million bailout. Speaking about McCain Wurzelbacher said, "I asked him some pretty direct questions. Some of the answers you guys are gonna receive — they appalled me, absolutely. I was angry. In fact, I wanted to get off the bus after I talked to him."
The reason he stuck with McCain is the reason alot of conservatives stuck with McCain, "honestly, because the thought of Barack Obama as president scares me even more."
However when asked about Palin he said, "Sarah Palin is absolutely the real deal."
This as come has no surprise to many conservatives who had a hard time swallowing the McCain nomination. Many only jumped on board after he chose Palin as his VP. However even after that McCain made a fatal mistake. He kept talking! The more he said the more liberal he sounded. Many conservatives did not trust him on issues such as Abortion, Immigration, or Marriage. All staples of the Republican platmore. Add on to that he continuly discussed the threat of global warming, something many conservatives beleive to be a hoax. He even made the mistake of calling himself a liberal Republican in the video below. You pile an economic meltdown on top of that and you end up with the thumping McCain got on Election Day.
