Obama's is 3 times larger than McCain's...

According to CNN's website, John McCain's lead over Barack Obama in his home state of Arizona is 7 points (45 to 38% with a 3% MOE), while Barack Obama's lead in his home state of Illinois is...wait for it...wait for it... 20 points: 56% to 36% with a 3.5% MOE! In short, Obama's lead in his home state is nearly TRIPLE what McCain's lead in his home state. I think it's also worth noting that in the Arizona poll, McCain doesn't even get support of half of those who were polled!

To be fair, polling for Arizona was done between Sept. 25 - 28 & in Illinois, it was done Sept. 15 - 18. Since things have only gotten worse for McCain since the middle of September (what with the ongoing economic collapse & the faux "suspension" of his campaign to get us all to believe that he was going to be our white knight & come galloping in on his (not-so) Straight Talk Express jet of a steed & heroically fix what he & his political pachyderm pals labored so mightily at breaking & coming up with--as my awesome Jewish friends call it--bupkis; his cranky behavior in the first debate; not to mention that mean ol' "gotcha" journalist, Katie Couric's torturing poor Sarah Palin with questions about foreign policy & John McCain's role in government regulation of the financial industry, and viciously forcing to her think of a Supreme Court case other than Roe v. Wade & practically screaming at her to provide the name a newspaper she reads; and, that snotty Tina Fey with the Sarah Palin glasses making fun of John's soul mate by repeating nearly word-for-word what Sarah had said to that beast Katie), I'm sure Obama's numbers in Illinois may be even better now (seeing as how Obama has improved ALL OVER THE COUNTRY lately).
