Pet Owners Favor McCain

WASHINGTON (AP) -- If the presidential election were to go to the dogs, then John McCain looks like the best in show.

A new Associated Press-Yahoo News poll finds that pet owners favor McCain 42 to 37 percent over Barack Obama, with dog owners especially high on the Arizona senator.

Obama doesn't have a pet at home. But McCain has a menagerie, including two dogs, two turtles, two cats, a ferret, three parakeets and a school of saltwater fish.

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

But that still leaves McCain looking strong, because 63 percent of all American homes have some kind of pet.

Obama has reportedly promised his daughters a dog once the campaign is over.
