I had been wondering when this was going to come up.
McCain, on the other hand, is only ahead by 6 points: 47% – 41%. He’s not even breaking 50% and barely breaking 45%. That’s why John McCain has to campaign in his home state. Arizona is the place where McCain has most of his houses. The people who know him best don’t really like him.
I can’t find it now, but I seem to remember a story about how little the Arizona press cared for Sen. McCain. It seemed significant, considering how much the national press adores him. It seemed that those most familiar with Sen. McCain cared for him least.
And so it seems to be with the voters in his “home” state. And, if the trend holds true, what does that say for the nation? The more information voters get, the less they’ll like Sen. McCain?
One can only hope.
