FINDLAY, Ohio (CNN) –- In an interview posted online Wednesday, Sarah Palin told Dr. James Dobson of “Focus on the Family” that she is confident God will do “the right thing for America” on Nov. 4.
Dobson asked the vice presidential hopeful if she is concerned about John McCain’s sagging poll numbers, but Palin stressed that she was “not discouraged at all.”
“To me, it motivates us, makes us work that much harder,” she told the influential Christian leader, whose radio show reaches millions of listeners daily. “And it also strengthens my faith because I know at the end of the day putting this in God’s hands, the right thing for America will be done, at the end of the day on Nov. 4.”
Dobson praised Palin's opposition to abortion rights, to which the governor affirmed that she is “hardcore pro-life.”
She said giving birth to her son Trig, who has Down syndrome, has given her the opportunity “to be walking the walk and not just talking the talk” in her long-standing opposition to abortion.
Dobson - who has never been warm to McCain - asked Palin if her “private conversations” with the GOP nominee had revealed a true commitment to the Republican party’s pro-life platform, which calls for a constitutional amendment banning abortions.
"I do, from the bottom of my heart," Palin assured Dobson. “John McCain is solidly there on those solid planks in our platform that build the right agenda for America.”
She also thanked her supporters - including Dobson, who said he and his wife were asking “for God’s intervention” on election day - for their prayers of support.
“It is that intercession that is so needed,” she said. “And so greatly appreciated. And I can feel it too, Dr. Dobson. I can feel the power of prayer, and that strength that is provided through our prayer warriors across this nation. And I so appreciate it.”
The interview was taped on Monday by phone while Palin was campaigning in Colorado Springs, where “Focus on the Family” is headquartered.
Apparently God has put Barack Obama 10 points ahead in the polls and made more than half of Americans believe that Sarah Palin is unqualified to be president.
I'm praying for an Obama victory. Therefore I'm confident that God will do what's right for this country.
OMG she is so delusional. Yes, I agree as a Christian myself, I believe that God will do the right thing also!!
Give GOD a break. Jesus was not a Repub or a Dem.
I am so glad that she has realized God is in control. Maybe they will stop this hate and fear speech.
Thank you Governor Palin for supporting the right things. It is a shame the left are God-less. Supporting Abortion and Gay Marriages are definitely not God-like. If you are a christian, this is the only ticket you should support. I cringe when I see leftist say God Bless America, God Bless Obama-.. That is not their focus, they are not real Christians if they support those views.
God will prevail even if we choose the wrong path (Obama)
By the way Joe Biden- Please don't take communion anymore- your views are against the Catholic Law..
Thanks Governor Palin. You have the right frame of mind.
God is righteous all the times; not just on election days.
Registered Republican "voted" Obama/Biden 08
She said, " God will do the right thing for America on Nov. 4". I would like to agree... but I guess she hasn't received the message that God is voting Obama on Nov 4. Why would God advocate for the McCain\Palin ticket when those 10 little rules God shot down mean nothing to them.
Oh Lord help us all!
didn't these guys also pray for the last 8 years of George Bush?
The good Lord is above politics. Please keep him above politics.
This is the same Dobson that led a prayer for tumultuous rain to fall on Obama at the democratic convention. We all know how that turned out. A hurricane swept in to upset the republican convention. Never use the Lord's name in vain.
I agree with Palin, we must pray that this election is NOT stolen. By this I mean, my God help this country and Sen. Obama win this election. He is the right choice and not McCain/Palin. GOD loves all of us. Not just the GOPs!
God will bless America on election day. That is truly the right thing.
Disgusting....she should not be mixing politics with her religious beliefs...period!! Dobson should have his tax exempt status taken away as well as Pat Robertson for having her on CBN.
Can we "presume" to know that God hasn't already instilled a change in the heart of mankind–that will direct his/her will?
This is the kind of radical baloney that seeks to split religious believers into groups and stinks of intolerance and ignorance.
Can you PLEASE tell Palin that God is not registered to vote!
Palin is a dangerous political. It's all about power and with no substance. She is a farce.
I feel that she has destroyed McCain's presidential bid and is also hurting the Republican party badly. The politics of fear are not working and that is a great thing for the USA.
She really needs to move to Iran, where she will fit right in with all the other theocrats. That or North Korea, where she can maneuver to be the next dictator. Democracy? That idea just goes right over her head
Ok, will she promise to go back to Alaska and remain in her igloo for the rest of her life if God votes Obama?
Does that mean that if Obama wins, then God wanted him to win and McCain and Palin to lose? or that God favors liberals?
While I believe Obama is best for America, I believe God loves us all, conservative, liberal, American, or foreigner. Does she?
What does she mean God will do the right thing on election day? God has given this world to the children of men. Although destroying it, He is not going to wave a magic wane to straighten this world up. Sarah, we are going to vote this President in. I am a Christian and I am pro-Barack Obama.
WOW! I'm a praying woman too, a FULL Beleiver. Praying for God's will to unfold on Nov 4th. So if Obama wins and he will win, is Sarah trying to say God didn't do the right thing????
Are you kidding me? If God does the right thing on Election Day, you will be going back to Alaska to face ethics violation charges, lady. You don't know what God is about. All you do is spew hatred and anger. God is about forgiveness and love.
I really do miss the time when Church and State were truly seperate. I understand having to pander to certain groups but this is quite dangerous when its a religion, especially a religion that if given too much influence may supress other religions as they currently do the muslim faith.
we will see what your Karma brings you.
