Today's States of the Race

Whoa! Open Left shows some wild state polls out today!

DFM Research of North Dakota:
Obama (D) 44%
McCain (R) 41%

Christopher Newport University of Virginia:
Obama (D) 49%
McCain (R) 43%

The bad news: I can't see any here.

The good news: NORTH DAKOTA??!! REALLY??!! This is the second consecutive poll and yet another of many polls since July showing a tight race/slight Obama lead here, so it's getting difficult to dismiss polls like this as "an outlier".

Oh yes, and remember Christopher Newport University? Remember when they showed McCain WAY UP when all other polls showed a tie or small Obama lead? Well, they've now fallen in line. This confirms that Obama has the edge in The Old Dominion.

Conclusion: It's all good today. Obama had a great debate last night. He's good on the stump today. And now, the primary battleground has shifted to once "Solid Red States" that are now VERY purple... States like North Carolina and NORTH DAKOTA! If this holds up, we'll have a great night on November 4. :-)
