Swing State: Arizona?

Is John McCain's home state of Arizona actually in play? Recent polling seems to suggest that this is a very real possibility. NBC/Mason-Dixon polling from October 27-28 shows McCain only up by 4 points and an Arizona State poll from October 23-26 has McCain up by 5.

New pessimism from the other Arizona senator, Jon Kyl, certainly doesn't help the McCain campaign's standing in the Grand Canyon State. The junior senator from Arizona and current number 2 Republican in the Senate was quoted the other day as saying "I think John McCain might be added to that long list of Arizonans who ran for president but never were elected....Maybe, we'll be able to say, well, Arizona's the only state where your child can't grow up to be president."
