A Bad Day for McCain

Is John McCain part of the “second tier”? Well, that depends on how you look at things, but the fact that he is closer in support levels to Mike Huckabee than Mitt Romney is deffinately not good news. Here is today’s Rasmussen tracking poll:

Rasmussen Daily Tracking Poll – August 29, 2007

Rudy Giuliani – 25%
Fred Thompson – 21%
Mitt Romney – 17%
John McCain – 10%

Bad news for McCain, but not as bad as the news that came out of his home state of AZ today. As Romney has shown, low national numbers do not necessairily mean the end of your campaign, but when even those in you home state (at least when it is a Republican state) start to jump ship, you know you have problems. Here is the latest AZ poll:

Arizona Republican Primary – August 29, 2007

John McCain – 24%
Mitt Romney – 19%
Rudy Giuliani – 18%
Fred Thompson – 17%

Interesting to note that Romney (the candidate who has faced the wrath of McCain the most), is the biggest threat to the Senator in his home state.
