    It was a big part of his campaign.

    McCain is really beginning to give up states that he has no chance in.

    Obama has given up in like 3-4 states, ones that were well out of reach by like 10-20 points at this point.

    I think it's become clear to the McCain campaign that MI. cannot be won Robert and with the money difference between the two , it makes sense that he would need to spend it elsewhere in red states that Bush won in 04 that are in play. Just look how much money Obama is spending in FL. what is it 39 million?

    true.. but you cant compare georgia with a rust belt swingstate like Michigan...With Michigan lost, Ohio, Indiana, Winsconsin and Pensylvania are seriously at risk..

    Oh I agree. Obama is now in the lead in Florida too because of his aggressive campaigning. And that was a state that McCain was suppose to win handily too.

    I don't know about a landslide, but I do agree with you on your other point. Georgia has been consistently Republican since the party shift, and will probably remain that way. Atlanta is pretty Democratic, but not enough to carry the rest of the state. Losing Michigan was huge. If McCain has to give up on many more states like that, he will be in some serious trouble. Good strategy on his part, but not a good sign for his campaign. Lets just hope the rest of America sees what Michigan sees, or we are going to be in for another long four years.

    I believe he is having trouble in Va. too, if i'm not mistaken, so it makes sense to me with the budget he has to compete against that he would pull from a state like MI. which lets all be truthful here Bush did not carry in 00 and 04 so was a long shot.

    He's having trouble in Colorado, Virginia, Indiana, and a couple of other states.

    If McCain loses long time red states, he's done for. Personally I think if Obama continues to pull away as the debates continue on then McCain is done before election day.

    Yeah.. but I was still concerned that michigan could go the other way.. funny thing is that I had michigan going to Mac but Florida going to Obama... Obama has nearly three quarters a million more new enrollments than mac in Fl..

    You know, I never thought McCain would win in MI. However, Obama better have a lot more than that in FL. I think Fl. is going to be very close this time around. However, I still think Fl. is going to go for McCain , but I do think CO. is going to go Obama and thats where he is going to win it I think.
