GOP presidential nominee John McCain strikes many voters as a centrist, according to polls. But as assessed by the Associated Press, McCainâ€™s record should comfort conservative Republicans â€” and concern those Democrats who are telling pollsters that theyâ€™ll vote for McCain if their candidate doesnâ€™t prevail in the nomination fight. McCainâ€™s voting record is strong, though not spotless, against abortion, gay marriage and gun control. His problem areas with conservatives remain stem-cell research, campaign finance limits and immigration. By the way, notes AP: McCain is polling at the same level of support among Republicans as George W. Bush did at this point in 2000.
