Painting That Electoral Map Blue

Here's the 2004 electoral college map:


Here it is now:


Yahoo News breaks it down:

The latest NBC/WSJ poll has Obama up six points with registered voters, 49%-43%. Just two weeks ago, that lead was within the margin of error at 2 points.

A CNN-Opinion Research Corp. poll has Obama even higher, with an 8-point lead (53%-45%). That's double the 4-point lead Obama held in their poll taken last month.

And, in today's Gallup Daily Tracking poll, registered voters prefer Obama 51% to McCain's 42%. Gallup points out the importance of this:

The nine-percentage point lead in Oct. 4-6 tracking matches Obama's highest to date for the campaign, and the highest for either candidate.
The polls show a clear trend towards Obama. With limited funding and increasingly shorter runway, McCain is reduced to playing defense in several battleground states. Coupled with a scared and angry electorate not in the mood for games, McCain is in his last throes.
