Poll: Obama catches GOP field in Arizona

ADVERTISEMENT
The PPP survey is the second poll released on Wednesday to show Obama surging in a swing state.

An NBC News/Marist poll released on Wednesday showed Romney with a 5-point lead on the president in Arizona, and Santorum with a 3-point lead.

Obama lost Arizona by nearly 9 points to Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in 2008, but this year the president is in contention with Republicans, who don’t hold a home-state advantage as McCain did.
