McCain Making Inroads In Some Key Democratic States

Posted March 31, 2008 at 3:37pm

John McCain is running strongly in three states that have been solidly Democratic in recent presidential elections and a particular surprise is New Jersey where, a month ago, Hillary Clinton had a double-digit lead, according to a new round of state-by-state general election match-ups.

The series of polls by Rasmussen Reports, which included Michigan and Washington State, also underscored what most other national and state polling has found – high negatives for Clinton as far as favorability ratings. McCain often scores the highest favorability ratings, while Obama comes out on the positive side, but by lesser margins.
