GOFFSTOWN, New Hampshire, (AFP) - John McCain warned rival Barack Obama not to get cocky with his comfortable lead in the polls Wednesday as he hammered away at the Democrat's plans to "redistribute wealth." "My opponent's looking pretty confident these days," McCain told a rally in Goffstown, New Hampshire. McCain said the people often prove the pundits and pollsters wrong, like the surprise win he posted in the New Hampshire primary which put his flagging campaign on the path to the Republican nomination. "I can't think of any place I'd rather be as election day draws close than running an underdog campaign in the state of New Hampshire," McCain told the cheering crowd. Central to McCain's attack on Obama, who is now 7.6 points ahead in a Realclearpolitics average of recent polls and is also leading in most battleground states, is the assertion that the Illinois senator is a shifty, job-killing socialist.
