20.1 vs. 6.1

Posted by JumpyPants

Building on Bob's glee, below, over McCain having to campaign in his home state, I think it's worthwhile to look for a second at the respective leads the candidates have in their home states (according to the latest from Pollster.com), thus the headline above:

Obama is ahead by 20.1 points in Illinois

McCain is ahead by 6.1 points in Arizona

And here's yet more gleeful news, via DailyKos and Research 2000:

If the 2010 election for U.S. Senate were held today for whom would you vote for if the choices were between Janet Napolitano the Democrat and John McCain the Republican?

McCain (R) 45
Napolitano (D) 53

John McCain, talk now, my friend, because pretty soon, the only person who will want to listen to you is the person also known as the cunt who paints on her make-up like a trollop.

UPDATE: According to TPM's map, it's 25.7 vs. 4. FOUR! Obama trails McCain in Arizona by FOUR.
