    I've always heard it in between but closer to an O than an A.  This goes along with most English, not just American English, being pronounced in a lazy un-articulated manner.

    "To" is pronounced with an 'uh' sound instead of an O as well. 

    'Water" is most commonly pronounced with a D instead of a T.

    It's Spanish.  Americans have enough trouble pronouncing English.
