CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- A new political poll commissioned by the Chattanooga Times Free Press found Republican presidential nominee John McCain with a 16 point lead over Democrat Barack Obama in Tennessee.
The Mason-Dixon poll also found incumbent Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander leading Democrat Bob Tuke by a 57-33 margin in the U.S. Senate race, with 10 percent undecided. The poll found only 8 percent of respondents didn't know who Alexander was, while 54 percent did not recognize Tuke.
The poll had a sampling error of plus-or-minus 4 percentage points.
Only 37 percent of poll respondents felt President Bush was doing a good or excellent job. Meanwhile, 43 percent said Bush is doing a poor job, while 19 percent gave him a fair rating.
