Here are the latest additions to our round-up of state-by-state general election match-ups between John McCain and Obama.


**Michigan:** Obama and McCain are in a statistical tie with Obama leading 45 percent to 42 percent with v5 percent choosing “other” and 7 percent undecided in a Rasmussen Reports poll conducted June 9. The margin of error is 4.5 percent. McCain is viewed favorably by 58 percent of voters compared to 54 percent for Obama. Twenty-eight percent of voters say McCain is too old to be president while 64 percent disagree. When asked if Obama is too inexperienced, they say yes by 46 percent to 44 percent. A SurveyUSA poll conducted May 27 had McCain ahead of Obama by 41 percent to 37 percent with 21 percent undecided. The margin of error was 4.3 percent. Rasmussen’s previous poll in early May showed the race to be a toss-up, and it still looks that way. Democrats have carried Michigan in the last 4 elections.
