My 2005 Pontiac Grand Am SE 3.4 has been draging when I try to start it, It sounds like it wants to start but it dosen't I have to try it a few times before it will finally start. It's been doing this for a while now, Could it be a sensor, battery, starter or something electrical?

I'd start by making sure the battery has a full charge. Also, make sure battery connections are all clean and tight. If you want to go a little further, you can use a digital multimeter and check voltage readings.

Some of the national brand autostores will test the starter for you, if you want to take it off and take it to them?

They can also check your battery.
