(CNN) - Barack Obama continues to hold significant leads over John McCain, a fresh round of state and national polls out Thursday suggest, in what is unwelcome news for the Republican presidential nominee as Election Day inches closer and closer.
The Illinois senator now holds a 6 point lead over McCain nationwide, a new CNN poll of polls consisting of five recently released surveys show, while 8 percent remain undecided.
A string of new state polls also show Obama holding significant leads in several key battleground states, including Minnesota, New Hampshire, Ohio, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. McCain is holding onto leads in Montana and Missouri.
In Minnesota, CNN's latest poll of polls shows Obama up 11 points, 52-41 percent, while he holds a 9 point lead in CNN's latest New Hampshire poll of polls, 51-42 percent. Obama is also holding onto a 4 point lead in Ohio, 50-46 percent in CNN's latest poll of polls there.
In West Virginia, Obama holds an 8 point lead in a new American Research Group poll, though CNN's Sept. 21-23 poll of West Virginia showed McCain leading there by 4 points. In Wisconsin, a new Research 2000 poll shows Obama with a 10 point lead, 51-41 percent. CNN's Wisconsin poll earlier this month showed Obama with a 5 point lead.
In Missouri, a new CNN poll of polls shows McCain hanging onto a 1 point lead, while the Arizona senator has a 5 point lead in Montana according to a new American Research Group poll.
Yeah!...Sarah Palin, keep talking!
Go Obama/Biden 08
Momentum!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Let's keep this going and do everything we can to get out the vote!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
OBAMA!!! OBAMA!!!! OBAMA!!!!
McCain: "Who is Barack Obama?"
Answer: "The guy who is whooping you in every national poll and in every battleground state."
go Obama!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OBAMA/BIDEN 08!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm voting early in just 7 days (October 16) for "THAT ONE"
Because I'm sick of the negative hate-inciting stuff coming from the McWarmonger campaign. He has lost all honor.
Keep up the good work Sen. Obama. Please stay positive.
While nothing could please me more than to see Obama win, we can take this thing for granted. There are plenty of dirty tricks in McCain's cookie jar and plenty of time to play them.
I'm fired up and ready to roll!!!!
That One '08
Wouldn't it be something if the whole map turned blue.
Austin, Texas is Obama territory – from what I've seen over the past several months. It would be nice to see Texas turn blue.
Glad to see Obama ahead in the polls – he deserves to be ahead. Obama is a good man and will work hard for us.
Obama supporters must stay focused. The get of the vote operation is essential for Obama to win. The McCain/RNC/FOXnews campaign is starting to yell pretty loud, so all of the falsehoods have to be beaten back with the truth, with hard facts, and with heavy dose of force.
Obama leading in West Virginia! It's official, this election is over!
Obama supporters – do not get complacient. Keep pushing at maximum effort all the way through November 4. We are on the verge of taking back this country from the worng headed politics of the neo-cons. Dont let up one inch!!!!!!!!!!!!

10/1/07 National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2008
God bless America.
Lets Make it a landslide.Its the change we believe in.
Vote Obama/Biden 08
These are some radical, scary times. America needs some BIG changes right now...Bush is 100x worse than Herbert Hoover. We desperately need a leader with potential to become the next FDR.
That leader is clearly Barack Obama.
Only a five point lead in Montana? Trailing in West Virginia? I think its time McCain starts considering running out the rest of his campaign in dignity.
VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE
Way to go Barry, and all you people working in the trenches to get Senator Obama elected! If you wonder who I mean: if you have told anyone why you will vote or have voted for Barry, then I mean you.
Too many people are looking for any reason to not vote for Senator Obama, and the more people vocally supporting Barry the easier it will be for others to follow suit.
WHAT ABOUT THE NEWS ON VOTERS BEING REMOVED OFF THE LIST..IN OHIO, COLORADO, INDIANA, MICHIGAN, NEVADA AND ALABAMA. THEY ARE USING SOCIAL SECURITIES AS THE FIRST WAY OF IDENTIFICATION OF VOTERS, WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW. THEN THEY AREN'T EVEN NOTIFYING THESE VOTERS THAT THEY HAVE BEEN REMOVED. THEREFORE ON NOV 4TH THEY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO VOTE THE TIME ARTICLE SAID TENS OF THOUSAND OF VOTERS MOSTLY DEMOCRATS. CNN GET THE REAL NEWS AND GO FIND OUT WHY NO ONE IS DOING ANYTHING ABOUT IT. THIS IS ON OUTRAGE!!
VOTERS CHECK AND MAKE SURE YOU REALLY ARE REGISTERED BEFORE NOV 4TH
No doubt we are gonna win this
I live in Wisconsin.
The 10 point Wisconsin poll is correct. Things started to shift here about 2 weeks ago. In the last week, the support for Obama has been growing very quickly here.
Correction: Virginia, not West Virginia.
That One /Biden 08
