Poll: Obama Gaining On McCain In Home State

In a new Rasmussen poll, McCain only leads by nine points in his home state. He trails Obama by six points with women.

A Cronkite/Eight poll last week found McCain was only ahead ten points in Arizona, with 34% of the electorate still undecided.

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