The implosion continues (4)

This new Reuters/Zogby poll shows McCain ahead of Obama by five points.

Today's Electoral College map shows that Obama's lead over McCain has shrunk to a mere 264-261 (counting Virgina as too close to call, and does anyone really think McCain isn't going to win Virginia?)

This is after eight years of Bush. With an unpopular war. With the economy sputtering. With a massive shift of voter identification from Republican to Democrat.

Do we know how to lose 'em or what?!

Update (21 August): Blogger Not Your Sweetie notes that RCP's Electoral College map shows McCain winning by 274-264 if the election were held today -- while on the same date in 2004 Kerry was leading Bush 301-213.

I suspect you are correct regarding Virginia. However, there is a slight chance of Obama winning on the coattails of the local Democratic Party, which has a very strong state-wide slate this year, as opposed to the Republicans, who are vomiting up a parade of yahoos, losers, has-beens and never-weres...

Isn't that pretty much the Republican electorate, though? ;-)

The good news is: the election is still two-plus months away and anything can happen.

The bad news is: the election is still two-plus months away and anything can happen.
