Barack Obama won’t be calling the Hogs anytime soon.

John McCain will.

Obama can’t get over 36% of support from any kind of voter in Arkansas according to the annual Arkansas Poll by the University of Arkansas released today. Obama stayed at 36% of likely voters, registered, most likely, age seven, kind of dead, sort of dead, newly dead, or otherwise dead voters. Perhaps Acorn supports Obama more than 36%, but they weren’t polled.

Republican John McCain appears to be the favorite among Arkansans in the presidential race over Democrat Barack Obama, a poll released Tuesday shows.

The poll also showed a majority of Arkansans favoring a proposed state-run lottery and opposing a prohibition on unmarried and same-sex couples as adoptive or foster parents.

The annual Arkansas Poll by the University of Arkansas showed that 49 percent of those polled said they would have voted for McCain and 36 percent for Obama if the presidential election had been held on the day they were questioned. Among registered voters polled, McCain had 51 percent support while Obama stayed at 36 percent.

McCain’s lead grew to 53 percent among respondents who identified themselves as “very likely” voters, while Obama stayed at 36 percent, according to poll director Janine Parry.

With a sample of 1,628 completed surveys out of 3,786 people called between Oct. 1 and Oct. 21, the poll’s margin of error is plus or minus 2.5 percentage points. Eleven percent of respondents in the poll were surveyed by cell phone.

36% won’t help win in the electoral college or the popular vote for Obama. If the Messiah should win, Arkansas most likely will be among the states that will be punished with taxes and fines.
