(CNN) - A string of new state polls suggests Barack Obama still holds an advantage in several key battleground states, and is within single digits in a state that has voted Republican in the last two presidential elections.
New CNN poll of polls in three swing states - Ohio, Wisconsin, and Minnesota - show the Illinois senator with a lead, while a new poll in West Virginia puts John McCain ahead.
In Ohio, the latest CNN poll of polls shows Obama with a 1 point lead over McCain, 47 to 46 percent while the Illinois senator has a 13 point lead in a Wisconsin poll of polls and a 8 point lead in a Minnesota poll of polls.
Both Minnesota and Wisconsin voted for John Kerry in 2004 while Ohio has gone to the Republicans in the last two elections.
Meanwhile, a new NBC/Mason Dixon survey of West Virginia voters has John McCain with a 6 point lead there, 47-41 percent. It's a considerably smaller gap than the 13-point margin of victory President Bush garnered there in 2004.
Obama campaign manager David Plouffe said in a taped-message to supporters Sunday that the campaign will be pouring resources into West Virginia during the final two weeks of the presidential race in hopes of turning it blue.
At least some people are coming to their senses in these states. For those who havent made up their mind, dont listen to the fear and hatred from the right about Obama. Thats all the right can do is generate hate and fear to swing elections. Get the facts and read for yourself.
My husband & I have already voted in Indiana, may Barack turn Indiana Blue............
We can't count the chickens before they hatch or something like that, but Colin's endorsement was great this morning (after being snowed by the Bush team, way to come back with a bang Mr Powell)
American people have come a long way and even if we have aways to go
we will make it.
Like Obama said don't get cocky. Don't listen to the polls. Now we are to bid together and go to the poll and vote. Now we are at the threshold to being really 'ONE NATION, UNDIVIDED" WITH OBAMA FOR PRESIDENT, THAT WILL BE OUR REALITY. No more lying to our children that such a dream here is not reachable. IT WILL BE IF YOU GO AND VOTE.
Well said "Oregonian for Obama/Biden". Let's all work together to take back the White House and clean it up. Obama/Biden!!!!!!!!!!!!!
YES WE CAN!! OBAMA/BIDEN '08
I believe that although the polls show the race tightening on the national level, I believe that the state by state polling is much more important. Because of the electoral college system, each state is vital to this election.
I hope that the hate mongering that the McCain campaign has unleashed would totally backfire on them. The country does not need this nonsense. A Barack election would surely change the face of the nation for the better. We democrats have to fight this smearing, robocalling, and incredibly wrong public statements that we are hearing.
We can defeat this hatred at the polls.
I MEAN: WE ARE TO BIND TOGETHER
I hope that in the 2 weeks remaining in the presidential race that the American people look at all the facts and if you still feel compelled to vote for Obama then do so But if your only reason for voting Obama is because you dislike Bush. Ask your self is this the type of Man you want to lead our sons and daughters into the heat of Battle. Obama will not give our vets the respect that they Deserve and have giving thier lives for.
Look at the facts and vote for the one man who will represent AMERICA with PRIDE a true American Hero and man who will put the American people first John McCain is not George Bush . He is is own Man and Deserves our Support and Votes GOD BLESS AMERICA
Attention Obama supporters - Obama has another less-acknowledged edge. If you remember the primaries, Democratic registration for all candidates in the primaries were often almost double that of republicans. This is a natural base - the missing ingredient is simply TURNOUT TURNOUT TURNOUT. Identify registered voters you know and help get them to the polls. Support them if there are irregularities at the polling place.
Can't you just taste HISTORY?
demote republicans - vote democrat!
The Key word for Senator Baraack Obama supporters is "NO ONE SHOULD BE COMPLACENT UNTIL THE LAST VOTE IS COUNTED IN OOBAMA"S COLUMN."
Republicans are notorious for stealing close elections... There is only way to keep this from being close... VOTE!!!
Oregonian for Obama/Biden–> So very true!! We all need to make sure we vote and not just EXPECT that Obama will win without all of us. ;-)

I cannot wait to vote tomorrow!!!
Vote early Florida!
We cannot allow McCain/Palin to steal this away with their negative ads and campaigning– appealing to the fears of narrow-minded people....
After paying acorn $832,000 obama should be 30 pts ahead!
pelosi, reid, frank, hussein – GOODBYE AMERCICAN – HELLO SOCIALISM OR WORSE!!
I don't think the polls are reflecting the increased number of young Americans who will vote this year. Many for the first time.
Too true. Obama himself said that Democrats have a history of "snatching defeat from the jaws of victory" in elections.
There is no room for gloating here, we are lucky to have so many Americans receptive to our candidate's message, and should work even harder these remaining days to take the message to other places.
Let's not count our chickens before they hatch.
Just vote people. The chips will fall where the will.
DON'T UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF THE 'ROBO-PHONE LIES'
The robo-phone lies destroyed John McCain in 2000 Republican Primaries. Just after McCain shocked the nation with his early primary wins in 2000, surrogates for George W. Bush hit South Carolina hard with 'rob-phone lies' falsely accusing McCain of fathering an illegitimate Black child.
The Bush surrogates knew the Appalachian states were easy marks for racist lies and could be easily be bamboozled into believing the lie by voting against Senator McCain. The Bush surrogates guessed correctly that South Carolina was easy prey to racism, and Bush went on to win the Presidency, and the rest is history.
It is scary the bradley or the lazy effect would happen. Obama will change the world . McCain is just like usual. Obama will be respected and america will be respected . god with you Barack. If god wants to put you in the white House nobody will take you out of it. I mean nobody!!!! thats called your destiny!!!!
