In Tennessee McCain Leads by 24

The Republican nominee is viewed favorably by 63% of Tennessee voters and unfavorably by 36%.
Obama’s ratings are 39% favorable, 60% unfavorable.

John McCain now leads Barack Obama in the Volunteer State by twenty-four percentage points in Tennessee. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in the Volunteer State shows McCain with a 56% to 32% margin. That’s essentially where the race stood in April although Obama managed to close the gap to fifteen points in June, shortly after wrapping up the Democratic nomination.

When “leaners” are included, McCain now leads Obama 60% to 35%. Leaners are survey participants who initially indicate no preference for either major candidate but indicate that they are leaning towards either McCain or Obama. Fifty-seven percent (57%) say that most reporters are trying to help Obama win the election while just 9% believe the media is trying to help McCain.

These figures are similar to the national average. Another recent survey found that most voters see media bias as a bigger problem than large campaign contributions.

PRESIDENTIAL RACE: Nevadans give McCain edge(M-D poll: McCain +7)

Nevada voters favor Republican John McCain over Democrat Barack Obama, but a sizable number who plan to vote remain undecided about the presidential race, according to a new Review-Journal poll. As both parties aim to put the diverse and growing swing state into play, McCain has taken the lead by a margin of 46 percent to Obama's 39 percent, with 15 percent undecided, according to the poll. The poll, conducted in concert with other news organizations in six Western states, found McCain enjoying an edge throughout his home region. Taken as a whole, voters in Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming favored McCain, 48 percent to 39 percent, with 13 percent undecided. McCain led in every state except Colorado.

It should be 'the Republican nominee is viewed favorably by 100% of Americans'.
Anyone who would vote for Obama is a 'mental midget'. (to use the term by a famous Keating)
