The poll of polls reveals Obama holding steady.

Colorado…

Florida…

An average of polls conducted in battleground Florida, shows Obama leading McCain by 4 points, 49% to 45%. Saturday’s Florida Poll of Polls also showed Obama leading McCain by 4 points.

Iowa…

In Iowa, where it all started for Sen. Obama, the Illinois senator is leading McCain by 14 points, 53% to 39%.

Minnesota…

CNN’s new Minnesota Poll of Polls shows Obama leading McCain by 12 points, 52% to 40%; The last Minnesota Poll of Polls –- released October 30 –- showed Obama leading McCain by 13 points.

New Hampshire…

In New Hampshire, Obama is leading McCain by 11 points, 53% to 42% according to the latest CNN Poll of Polls. CNN’s last New Hampshire Poll of Polls –- released November 1 –- showed Obama leading McCain by 12 points.

Pennsylvania…

CNN’s new average of polls in Pennsylvania shows the Democratic nominee leading the Republican nominee by 7 points, 51% to 44%; CNN’s last Pennsylvania Poll of Polls –- released November 1 –- showed Obama leading McCain by 8 points.

Virginia…

Finaly, in Virginia, a state that has voted Republican in every presidential race since 1968, Obama is leading McCain by 7 points, 51% to 44%.

And there we are.

I think the only question mark here is Florida. All the rest are pretty much locked up. Sure, Pennsylvania and Virginia could be closer than previously thought, but any state where Obama is polling above 50% will turn blue.

    So what you’re trying to say is that if McCain wins, it’s only by theft, and the underlying democracy of this country has crumbled?

  2. Donklephant » Blog Archive » CNN: Obama Leads In NV, NC, OH Says:

    [...] Earlier I said that any state where Obama was below 50% was a problem for him. However, in Nevada I think there’s an exception, especially because McCain is at 43%. I just don’t think it’s realistic that he’ll get a 7% swing. [...]

  3. Simon Says:

    Chris – if McCain wins – yes, it’s by theft. Voter suppression, Republican election officials who discard all provisional ballots at their discretion. The usual deal. This time it’s going to be too hard for them Obama has too big a lead in too many swing states, they didn’t have the resources to rig that many.
