Flex and JSON.decode woes

I am having some trouble getting the JSON.decode() method working.

I currently have the following JSON file in UTF-8 format:

"USA":{"obama":7450, "mccain":7450}

I am accessing it in Flex with the following code:

private function onJSONLoad(event:ResultEvent):void
	var rawData:String = String(event.result);
	var countries:Array = (JSON.decode(rawData) as Array); as String);
	var dp:ArrayCollection = new ArrayCollection(arr);

	voteTable.dataProvider = dp;	

	showBusyCursor="true" />

However, for the life of me, I cannot get Flex to correctly parse the JSON code into an array. In the line:

var countries:Array = (JSON.decode(rawData) as Array);

The countries array never gets populated with any of the data from the JSON file, even though the contents of the rawData variable correctly contain all the JSON code. The countries array is always empty.

What am I doing wrong? Can someone point me in the right direction? Is there a problem with the JSON code structure? Is there something remarkably stupid I am overlooking? Hope someone can help me look at this with a fresh pair of eyes and see if they can spot the problem, because I have really hit a wall here.

Help me Obi-wan, you're our only hope!! I have been working on this problem for the past two days and really don't know where else to turn to for help!

Many thanks!
