WASHINGTON (AP) -- John McCain has an explanation for why he's been falling in the polls since the financial crisis came to a head.
He says it's because "life isn't fair."
He chuckled as he made the remark Thursday morning on Fox News. It comes a day after a new Associated Press-GfK poll indicates Barack Obama has a seven-point lead over McCain. Just three weeks ago, McCain was slightly in front.
But McCain says his campaign is "doing fine." He says he's been up and down in the polls, but that he's not going to "worry about the day-to-day tick-tock."
Still, he concedes that he has "a lot of work to do."
McCain says he loves "being the underdog," and he predicts a late night on election night. But he says he's "very happy with where we are."
