Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin stopped by Focus on the Family head Jim Dobson's radio show this week to assure evangelical Christians that if elected, she's convinced John McCain will implement more traditional Republican policies on issues including stem cell research, abortion and same-sex marriage.

Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin stopped by Focus on the Family head Jim Dobson's radio show this week to assure evangelical Christians that if elected, she's convinced John McCain will implement more traditional Republican policies on issues including stem cell research, abortion and same-sex marriage.

Though many moderate Republicans have suggested McCain has skewed more conservative than ever before in this election to shore up Republican votes, Palin's interview with Dobson suggests that if elected, America would see that McCain's views on social issues are more closely aligned with her own.

"I do, from the bottom of my heart," she told Dobson. "I am such a strong believer that McCain believes in those strong planks and we do have good conversations about some of the details too, about the different planks and what they represent."

MSNBC political writer Matthew Berger posted a recount of the interview to the network's First Read blog. He said Dobson began the conversation by saying that the McCain/Palin platform is the "strongest pro-life, pro-family document to come out of a political party."

McCain has split from party lines with his views on several social issues. He opposes abortion but has said he doesn't support a constitutional amendment to ban it. He also voted against the federal marriage amendment.

The two have also disagreed on stem cell research. McCain has previously said he would look to relax restrictions implemented by the Bush administration on embryonic stem cell research.

Earlier this week, Palin said she supported a federal marriage amendment to ban same-sex marriage. She is also against abortion and stem cell research. (The Advocate)
