Check out CNN's Electoral Map.
(CNN) - Some tough news for John McCain in his own backyard, as his home state of Arizona moves from “safe McCain” to “lean McCain” in the latest CNN poll of polls.
And the Republican nominee continues to lose ground in reliably-red areas, as North Dakota moves from “lean McCain” to “toss-up” – meaning three electoral votes that had been counted for McCain are now considered up for grabs.
But there’s some good news for McCain down south: Louisiana has moved from “lean McCain” to “safe McCain.” And the movement on the map is far from done.
Barack Obama now leads McCain by 131 electoral votes, up from his 128-vote lead yesterday. CNN now estimates that if the presidential election were held today, Obama would win 291 electoral votes and John McCain 160. There are 87 electoral votes up for grabs. Again, 270 electoral votes are needed to win the White House.
The CNN Electoral Map is based on analysis from the CNN Political Unit and takes into account a number of factors, including polling, state voting trends, ad spending patterns, candidate visits, and guidance from the campaigns, parties, and political strategists. The list will be updated regularly as the campaign develops over time.
This Election, the American People are going to cry out in one voice...
WE WANT CHANGE
NO MORE FEAR
NO MORE War-MONGERING
NO MORE NEO-CONS FASCISTS
VOTE NOV 4th, and VOTE LOUDLY FOR HOPE...
All this john the plumber stuff is just pathetic
Would someone from CNN explain to me why Louisiana is leaning McCain? With their large black polulation and the Katrina experience under Bush, it just doesn't make any sense. What am I missing? Help me here.
Sarah Palin will return to Alaska next week where she will enjoy the next four years by firing darts at Obama everytime he slips up. Of course, as the economy sinks and people are selling apples on street corners, Obama will either be impeached or not re-elected.
Sarah will return in 2012-wiser and tougher to claim the Presidency.
It is not a good day when you have to defend your own state. I just dont know what to say at this point but hello President Obama.
MCNASTY IS JUST WAYYYYYY TOO OLD AND SICK TO COMMAND !
Never mind all polliings, let's hope americans remember George Bush and his mediocre policies when they vote this coming tuesday. WOULD YOU LET YOURSLEF DIED OF HUNGER INSTEAD OF BEING FED BY A BLACK MAN?.......Comon people show some common sens!
I hope the losing candidate IMMEDIATELY wishes the winning one success and offers all of the help he would need.
McCain–win or lose– needs to go back to his 2000 roots
Obama–if he wins–needs to reach out and immediately announce Republicans to be in his cabinet or inner advisory circle; if he loses–to do so with grace and offer unity and not excuses
then we will have good change
As so often happens in America, the battle seems like it takes forever, the mud flies in all directions, every kind of personal weakness and innuendo is dug up in hopes of finding the "October Surprise" that will take second to first.
And then, the real surprise...the best one wins. God bless America.
Why does McCain and his campaign keep talking about Joe The Plumber? He may do plumbing, but he's not licensed as a plumber. They sure know how to distort things. I taught my children how to read before they started school, does that make me a teacher? Many men may do their own electrical work in their homes (and I am talking about those who know exactly what they are doing), does that make them electricians? Come on now.
Let freedom ring!
Just imagine...a sea of blue from the East Coast to Montana. Then, all we need is tunnel through the upper tip of Idaho to connect the the two coasts!
On election night the map will look just like it did in 2004. Republicans are not going to vote for Obama. But many moderate Democrats, like myself, are voting for McCain.
This is the real story people! You can vote whatever way you want but the electoral college are the ones deciding here. This is not a democracy. Democracy is mob rule. This is a REPUBLIC. "...And to the REPUBLIC, for which it stands. One nation, under god, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
We seem to be forgetting the pledge of alliegance as of late.
Is that a loud sucking sound I hear from Arizona?
It was a good run while it lasted, oh whom I kidding. No it wasnt.
Is any intelligent person surprised? All McCain has going for him is an unlicensed plumber who owes back taxes and the most unqualified VP candidate in history.
Soon GA will be a TOSS-UP!
What ever honor Sen McCain had, he has lost it in this campaign. Along with his puppet Gov Palin, they have run one of the nastiest campaigns this country has seen in a while. As an retired military man, he has truly forgot what honor is.
I am voting for Barrack, but after this election I hope there will be more than a 2 party system.
haha – wonderful!
we don't need division, we need unity!!!
Go Obama/Biden '08
Blue has always been my favorite color!!
Even Arizona is beginning to catch up!!! wow!! Good job guys!! "joe the plumber " or rather "Joe the singer" even he is moving on....it did provide comic relief while it lasted....
If the rest of the world was voting, it would be 100% for Obama.
McCain's campaign reminds me of the last minutes of any carrot-top comedy act – down to the pointless gimmicks to fill time. McCain should have retired his gimmicks a long time ago. Gimmicks not limited to Palin, Joe the unlicensed plumber, Tito the builder, "Socialist", "spread the wealth" claims, non-existent "experience" claims, "Rocky" theme music, "pals with" exaggerations, "Straight Talk Express", and "clean" campaign promises.
