According to the latest Rasmussen poll, he’s only got a five-point lead in his home state:
John McCainâ€™s lead over Barack Obama is down to just five points in his home state of Arizona. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in the state finds the Senator leading 51% to 46%.
McCain is viewed favorably by 59% of voters in Arizona and unfavorably by 40%. Obamaâ€™s ratings are 49% favorable, 50% unfavorable.
Voters in Arizona trust their stateâ€™s Senator more than Obama on the top issue of the economy by a 52% to 44% margin. However, voters not affiliated with either party trust Obama more, 52% to 39%.
On national security and the War on Terror, voters in Arizona trust McCain more by a 56% to 40% margin. Again, unaffiliated voters trust the Democrat more on this issue, 49% to 45%.
Now, in the end, McCain will probably win Arizona, but the fact that he’s barely pulling out a lead there with only one week to go shows just how bad things are for him.
