CNN Sez: Obama Gains on Electoral Map

CNN now shows its electoral map as:

Obama (D) 240 EVs
McCain (R) 200 EVs
Toss Up 98 EVs

Because of Obama's strong showing in all the new Michigan polls, Michigan has been moved from "Toss Up" to "Leans Democratic", meaning 17 more electoral votes in Obama's column. CNN still lists as "Toss-Up":

New Hampshire (4 EVs)
Virginia (13 EVs)
Florida (27 EVs)
Ohio (20 EVs)
Wisconsin (10 EVs)
Minnesota (10 EVs)
Colorado (9 EVs)
Nevada (5 EVs)

If we add Minnesota, Wisconsin, and New Hampshire to Obama's column, he has 264 EVs. If he holds all the Kerry states and wins Iowa and New Mexico (these 2 states are likely now to turn blue this year), all Obama needs is either Colorado, Virginia, Ohio, and/or Florida... Along with Nevada for some extra padding.

We're so close to victory... Let's make it happen! :-)
