A few state polls have come out this afternoon that are worth noting.
Rasmussen shows McCain up by 2 in New Mexico — which is an improvement over last month, when he trailed Obama by 4 points. This is a state that went for Gore by a whisker in 2000 and the flipped to Bush. If Obama can’t win Virginia, Ohio, or Florida, NM will become essential to his electoral math.
CNN/Time has released polls showing Obama up 4 in Michigan and 6 in New Hampshire, McCain up 5 in Missouri, and 4 in Virginia . All of these results are more or less consistent with other polls, although the gaps are a bit wider in this batch.
The bottom line is that after a few days of state polling following the conventions, the electoral map keeps looking more and more like it did in 2004.
