States of the Race: Good, Bad, or Ugly?

Oh my! We have ourselves some new Rasmussen polls, along with a new UNH poll of New Hampshire. Whee, here we go!

University of NH Poll of New Hampshire:

McCain (R) 47%
Obama (D) 45%


McCain (R) 51%
Obama (D) 46%

Obama (D) 51%
McCain (R) 44%

McCain (R) 50%
Obama (D) 46%

Obama (D) 48%
McCain (R) 45%

McCain (R) 50%
Obama (D) 48%

The bad news: This should be our rude awakening for the "Live Free or Die" State. We'll have to fight hard for New Hampshire, and I hope Obama's ready for that fight.

The good news: Rasmussen confirms that Obama's on the up-swing in Michigan and Pennsylvania. Hopefully, this means our climb there won't be so difficult. Meanwhile, their Florida, Virginia, & Ohio numbers look better than their last polls of these states. Since Ras usually leans more Republican, hopefully this means the other polls showing more of a tied race in these states are correct.

Conclusion: Michigan and Pennsylvania look good, and with hard work & true grit I'm sure we'll win these states. On the other hand, we still have work to do to turn things around in New Hampshire. Overall, it's not bad... And Obama's still in good shape in most of these critical swing states. :-)
