This could look like good news for Mccain... but it is not, not at all.
Of course, Obama have no serious chance to pick the state, but consider :
It's a red state since ever.
Bush was ahead there by a huuuge 25% in 2004 : 61 vs 36
And of course, it's Palin's homestate.
And the red ticket is up by just 11.
Even in Palin's homestate they are losing 14 points compared to Bush ! They should be in the mid-60s !

Alaska senate race will depend on the verdict, which as of this morning is in the jury's hands.

Obama will win Alaska. My sister lives there and says people are VERY upset over Palin's deception in the troopergate scandal.

I'd give a hundred dollars to see two of the four "A" states go blue. It would be so sweet to pick up an Alaska or an Arizona, but I'd happily settle for Arkansas or an Alabama.

Losing AZ would be such a huge humiliation for Mccain.
