McCain Draws Dogged Support

McCain may not be doing well with the base but at least he's kicking butt...

with pet owners?

From the AP:

Pet owners prefer McCain over Obama
If the presidential election goes to the dogs, John McCain is looking like best in show.
The apparent Democratic nominee Barack Obama, on the other hand, doesn't have a pet at home.
An AP-Yahoo! News poll found that pet owners favor McCain over Obama 42 percent to 37 percent, with dog owners particularly in McCain's corner.

He has a veritable menagerie, including Sam the English springer spaniel, Coco the mutt, turtles Cuff and Link, Oreo the black and white cat, a ferret, three parakeets and a bunch of saltwater fish.

On the other hand, the poll found that among people who don't have pets, Obama leads McCain 48 percent to 34 percent.

Does this have much to do with anything? Nope. I just like weird polls and happen to be a pet owner myself. On that note I'd like to see a poll showing the political affiliation of American pet owners.
