Straight Talk vs. Great Talk: Does Speaking Style Matter?

No one can deny that the two presidential candidates have distinct speaking styles. John McCain goes off script at town hall meetings, while Barack Obama holds stadium services. But this question remains: Does it matter to voters?

Some may appreciate McCain's bluntness (aka straight talk), but others see Obama's inspiring deliverance indicative of his inspiring message. I tend to think that voters will approve the style that corresponds to their presidential choice.

But, a particular style might give one candidate an advantage. If so, do you think Americans respond better to straight talk or great talk?
