Sun Expanded Coverage

(The Sun has gone on the road to listen to voters and talk to political leaders around the West. Reporters will examine the economic, cultural and demographic forces re-shaping the region as they drive to Denver for the first of the two major party conventions the Sun will cover.)

ALBUQUERQUE -- Our second stop interviewing voters today was a Chevron right near Kirtland Air Force Base.

William Lee, on a motorcycle, not voting for Sen. John McCain because he's too old. Not voting Obama, however. Voting Green or Libertarian. Iraq War is a sham, he said, but the bigger issue is economy.

Karen Garcia, voting McCain because "He's a Christian. He's against abortion, gay marriage, and other things we're against," she said. She's a born-again Christian. As for the war, "We have to trust our leaders, and he's a good leader."

Obama is having real problems with lower information voters.
