It is really becoming quite overwhelming, now that the McCain Camp quit Michigan the public has caught a whiff of blood. This does not normally bode well for the candidate who is already behind & struggling.
More Polls Show Obama Ahead In Battleground States

A new set of polls from Rasmussen shows Barack Obama further dominating in key swing states – though McCain retains an edge in Ohio for this particular firm:
**• **Colorado: Obama ahead 51%-45%, with a ±3% margin of error. Last week, Obama had a narrower 49%-48% edge.
**• **Florida: Obama up 52%-45%, outside the ±3% margin of error. Last week, the two candidates were tied at 47% each.
**• **Missouri: Obama up 50%-47%, within the ±3% margin of error. Three weeks ago, McCain was ahead 51%-46%.
**• **Ohio: McCain with a 48%-47% edge, with a ±3% margin of error. Last week, McCain was up 47%-46%, pretty much the same as now.
**• **Virginia: Obama up 50%-48%, within the ±3% margin of error, not all that different from Obama’s 50%-47% lead a week ago.
All five of these states voted for George W. Bush in 2004, and all totaled they have 80 electoral votes. If John McCain were to lose even one from the Republican column, winning would become extremely difficult.
