New York, Oct 27 : Democratic presidential nominee is said to be way ahead of his Republican rival John McCain, by 162-62, even in Alaska, the hometown of McCain's running mate Sarah Palin.

According to a report in the New York Daily News, Obama's surge as compared to McCain is far better than 48-28 which President George Bush had against his rival in 2004.

On Saturday evening, the biggest paper in Alaska "The Anchorage Daily News" added insult to injury when it endorsed Obama and Biden - instead of the ticket of its hometown Governor Sarah Palin.

"Despite [Palin's] formidable gifts, few who have worked closely with the governor would argue she is truly ready to assume command of the most important, powerful nation on earth," the paper wrote.
