    ...who plays well in the SW. I think if he's the nominee, it's Lean R, otherwise toss-up.

      R+9 now versus R+7 then.

        Also, like most of PPP's polls, the sample skewed old. I think this is a function of being unable to contact cellphones. Still it shows that AZ is a lean-R swing state, not the impregnable red fortress that it's often made out to be. It has a lot of hardcore right-wingers who do some off-the-wall stuff when they get a big majority, but there are enough Dems and swing voters to keep things competitive. It swung hard to the right in 2010, but so did most of the rest of the country.
