McCain's inside straight

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

With McCain pulling out of Michigan, and with PA, MN and WI not looking much better for him, we outlined yesterday what Obama needed to do to get past 260 EVs. What does McCain need to do: Winning OH, VA , FL, NC, IN and MO gets him to 260. CO or both NV and NH gets him to 269.

Now here's the kicker: McCain is increasing his presence in Maine, hoping to pick off 1 more EV in ME-2. That would get him to 270.

For this to happen the overall polls would have to tighten. But if they do, this looks like the path the McCain team is looking at to pull this off.
