Late Polls

McCain supporters should skip to the next post. There is no good news for you here.

CBS/NYTimes has their new national poll out and they have Obama ahead by 13 points. Suddenly, that Pew Poll from yesterday (Obama +14) doesn't look wild. The ABC/WP tracker holds steady at Obama +11. Some more state polls have come out late today as well:

Minnesota (Rasmussen) - Obama +15
Washington (Rasmussen) - Obama +11
Georgia (Rasmussen) - McCain +5
Pennsylvania (SurveyUSA) - Obama +12
Kansas (SurveyUSA) - McCain +12
Indiana (SurveyUSA) - Obama +4
Louisiana (Rasmussen) - McCain +16
Florida (St. Pete Times) - Obama +7
West Virginia (Orion) - McCain +5
Montana (Montana St. Univ.) - Obama +4
Maine (CInsights) - Obama +21
Arkansas (U. of Ark.) - McCain +15

The Minnesota Rasmussen poll suddenly makes this morning's poll from Big 10 Battleground look a little more credible. The SurveyUSA poll in Indiana makes the Big 10 Battleground poll there look a little more credible. SurveyUSA confirms what everyone else (including the Big 10 Battleground poll) is saying there. The Florida poll from St. Pete looks a lot like the Quinnipiac poll and the Montana poll is just an extra problem the McCain campaign did not need right now. Oh, by the way, McCain is now going to need to spend more money in West Virginia and Georgia.

Bottom line: EVERYTHING is moving the wrong way for John McCain at this moment ... except for John McCain's brother Joe, who is stuck in traffic.
