How funny! They have Texas, LA, MS as republican "leaners".

I guess you are assuming Obama wins all the Toss-ups?

According to the polls its Obama-525, McCain-3.

He should just drop out now if we base it on the polls.

He doesn't NEED to win them all.
That's the point.
Based on the data presented, he pretty much has it wrapped up without those states. He only needs a few of them.

All Mccain has to do is pick off MI and NH while giving Obama VA,CO,IA,NM,CO. Everything else stays the same - McCain wins.

I think Indiana, Missouri, Florida, and Virginia (and North Carolina) should be listed as "leaning Republican" because he is really likely to get those states in Nov. The other ones, I do agree that they are toss ups. But to say Indiana, Florida, or Missouri are toss ups, but exclude Wisconsin, Oregon, and Iowa as toss ups is showing an Obama bias.

Because it is listing Iowa, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin as "toss up states."

With RCP averages of 6.4%, 7.7%, and 9.3% for Obama - I'd say they are leaning towards Obama.
