Changes shift toward Obama on key states” electoral map: NYTOctober 11th, 2008 - 1:30 pm ICT by ANI
New York, Oct.11 (ANI): The New York Times has shifted the ratings of three states on its electoral map, and suggests that John McCain may be losing out to Barack Obama as far as the presidency is concerned. New Hampshire is now shifted as leaning toward Obama, based on polling and interviews with Republican and Democratic officials. The Granite State was good to McCain in the Republican primaries of 2000 and 2008, and considering that history and the large number of independents in the state it remains high on the list of Democratic states that McCain had been seeking to capture this November.
North Carolina, a state that is normally is about as red as they get, is being moved into the toss-up column. Obama has poured tons of money into the state, and is spending a lot of time there, and Republicans are growing increasingly anxious that he might take it away from them.
Oregon, which had been leaning toward Obama, has now gone from light to solid blue. (ANI)
