Floridians Like Spanking Children and John McCain in about Equal Amounts

Florida is such a swing state that we're even polarized on whether or not we think spanking children, aka "Corporal Punishment," is acceptable or not.

Seems Talking Points Memo has found a correlation between child spankers and John McCain voters in 2008. Florida is almost directly on the trend line, with a little over 50% of approving of paddling and just under 50% voting for McCain.
