GOP frontrunner John McCain is limping in his home state thanks to his stance on immigration. One in 10 Arizonans is an illegal immigrant, and the senator's support for legislation opponents call amnesty dogs him: A recent straw poll in a bellwether county voted him the least acceptable GOP candidate, though he's still expected to carry Arizona, the Los Angeles Times reports.
"There are a lot of passionate conservatives who don't believe in what Sen. McCain believes in," said the state GOP chair. Meanwhile, McCain is beating Mitt Romney nationally on the critical likeability issue, Politico reports. He's the candidate of primary voters who pick on personality instead of issues. He’s also dominating among older voters of both parties.
