RealClearPolitics - Electoral Map Just last week, this same map showed Obama way ahead in electoral votes. It seems McCain has pulled ahead in Ohio, Virginia, and North Carolina. Compared with this map: RealClearPolitics - Electoral Map It appears McCain is taking the edge in the all-important swing states. I really hope he can gain some ground in Pennsylvania. That's where Ridge comes into play. All-in-all, it's going to be a close race, another nail-biter just like the last two elections. That is unless Obama continues to crumble. One can only hope.
