Senator John McCain is leading in the latest poll . . . of pet owners. According to an AP-Yahoo! News survey, voters with furry friends prefer McCain over Obama 42%-37%. Dog owners are most likely to favor McCain. The explanation? McCain "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." Obama, in contrast, owns no pet. But once his campaign reads the polling data, his views on pets (like capital punishment, the Second Amendment, etc.) will undoubtedly change. After all, isn't change what the Obama campaign is all about?
Update: The American Kennel Club is conducting a poll on the best breed for the Obama family (What, you thought they'd make an actual decision without a poll?) Click here to vote. Hat tip: Laura Ingraham.
