The Most Insecure of the Kerry States is Looking Pretty Secure

At times during the last several months, New Hampshire was looking a little shaky for Obama. Not anymore. Rasmussen has released new data this morning that suggests New Hampshire is looking solid for Barack Obama who now has a 10-point lead in the Granite State:

Obama 53%
McCain 43%

A Saint Anselm College poll confirms Rasmussen's finding:

Obama 49%
McCain 37%
Undecided 11%

Part of the importance of this finding has been the Obama team's strategy to hold all of the Kerry states and build on this base of support with a few pick-offs from the Bush states to collect 270 electoral votes. Everyone now seems to agree that Iowa and New Mexico are easy pick-offs. With Pennsylvania, Michigan, and now New Hampshire from among the Kerry states looking pretty secure, all we need is just one state from among Colorado, Ohio, Florida, Virginia, North Carolina, or Indiana, and we've won this puppy.

Fingers crossed. Toes, too.
