I wish I could get excited about this. But there's just no way. Even with Bob Barr siphoning support. Even with Obama's disproportionate popularity out west. Even with popular Gov. Janet Napolitano as one of his key supporters. There is no way that Obama is leading in Arizona.
Seriously, I'm not even feeling a glimmer of hope here (the best explanation I've come up with so far is that it's a Zogby poll, and Zogby polls are of sketchy quality). But I do think that Obama may help Democrats in several close down-ticket races in McCain's home states.
And that, by itself, is far more than I could have hoped for.
