Pretty skewed interpretation there, alienstar. Only 5% reported McCain as "honest", and likewise only 9 percent say Obama is "dishonest".

Correct interpretation of the data would show the most common association with McCain is his age and Obama is that he's an "Outsider" (muslim? black?) and that he wants change.
