WATERLOO, Iowa -- Republican presidential nominee John McCain is dismissing the sour poll numbers that show him trailing in his race for the White House against Democrat Barack Obama and says his campaign is "doing fine."

McCain, interviewed Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press, said his campaign has pulled closer to Obama's in the last week. And McCain says he'll continue to be "very competitive" in many of the states the two senators are focusing on.

McCain says Bush failed in number of areas
Dismissing poll results, GOP candidate insists ‘we’re doing fine’

WATERLOO, Iowa - Sen. John McCain of Arizona, the Republican presidential nominee, said Sunday that he was a proud Republican but believed the Bush administration had failed in a number of areas, asking voters to remember that “I’m not George Bush.”

In recent days, the McCain campaign has aggressively run away from Bush and his unpopularity with voters, blaming him for the economic downturn and a record national debt. In an interview with NBC News last week, McCain’s running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, identified Bush’s unpopularity as the campaign’s most serious obstacle.

Speaking Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” McCain acknowledged that he has voted with Bush more than 90 percent of the time, but he said that on the most important issues — U.S. strategies in Iraq, climate change and the economy, “I was not popular in my own party.”

“I respect the president of the United States, of course,” McCain said in the interview with NBC’s Tom Brokaw. But “there were a number of disagreements over philosophy.”
