Poll: McCain Only Ten Points Ahead In Home State

Posted: Updated:

A statewide Cronkite/Eight poll finds that only 38 percent of Arizona voters would vote for McCain. 28 percent said they would vote for Obama, and 34 percent were undecided. Choosing Hillary Clinton as his vice-presidential running mate could cost Barack Obama about 5 percentage points in the state, according to the poll.

A few weeks ago McCain acknowledged that he could lose Arizona, calling his home a "swing state" even though it voted Republican in every presidential election but one since 1952.
