...In a briefing for reporters Monday, Obama campaign manager David Plouffe said they expected to hold all of the states won by Mr. Kerry in 2004, which gave him 251 electoral votes out of the 270 needed to win.
Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama has pulled back from Georgia, stepped up his campaign in Pennsylvania and Michigan, and poured attention on Ohio.
The campaign hopes to take Iowa and New Mexico out of the Republican Party's column, which would push its total to 264 - putting it within six electoral votes that the campaign expects to find in at least one of six remaining tossups: Colorado, Indiana, Virginia, Nevada, Nebraska or Florida.
"When you look at the battleground states that will determine the presidency, we feel very good about where we are," Mr. Plouffe told reporters.
But Republicans expect to hold red states that the Obama camp has targeted, and hope to pick off Pennsylvania or Michigan, where the Real Clear Politics average of polls gives Mr. Obama a narrow two percentage point lead. A Republican victory in either state would be devastating for Mr. Obama's chances.

McCain is catching up and Obama’s donations are drying up.
Panic has set in with the Dems.
Nebraska??? The Obama Campaign is building castles in the sky.
They are eyeing some of the EVs, especially from big city areas. Like Maine, Nebraska splits their EV.
Nebraska divides its EC votes rather than awarding them winner-take-all. My understanding is that Team Bambi hopes to get one EC vote there.
In Nebraska they’ve targeted Lincoln?, good luck there.
It’s not about winning anymore. It’s about saving face. Otherwise, Obama WILL be Carter 2.0...in November 1980.
OBAMA -the hysterical one- hath spoken
I think enough Americans are catching on that he’s a shoddy foreign import. No slave blood. A faker who has been doing a good imitation of competency when he’s really just a stage actor and a Columbia/Harvard affirmative action dunce
No crap! Obama is down to about a five state strategy, as is McCain. For Obama, it’s CO, VA, NH, MI, PA, and maybe OH, although I think he’s figuring out that OH is going to be tough. He doesn’t need us. He does need either CO or VA.
Obama backs off 60-state strategy
You counting the EU?
Indiana and Florida would be tough for Obama to pick up.
New Mexico and Colorado is his best bets. And if he wins Colorado, McCain better pick up Michigan or PA.
If I were barry, I’d pour a whole lot of money into ACORN in order to get the illegal, dead and contrived vote. This number is significant already.
Don’t listen to ratmedia push polls and ratmedia wishful thinking. Watch where they set up shops and close down shops.
“Obama backs off 50-state strategy”
is he changing it to a 57 - state strategy?
This seems to have been on the back burner, but may come home to roost. While Hussein hasn't released any transcripts, the fact that he wasn't included on any honor rolls at Colombia provides a clear indication that he was both unqualified and undeserving (ie the ultimate effect of affirmative action) to be admitted to HL.
That fact that he is NOT descended from slaves, yet is still widely embraced by AAs, is an interesting point. Imagine at some future date, an Hispanic POTUS candidate from Mexico City's ruling European elite, who appeals to descendants of illegals.
Obama is playing a 270 game. I want McCain to play the 300 game. Go for the gut and knock this phony out once and for all.
They have to show a path to victory otherwise their donors will get depressed and whatnot.
Big city areas? In Nebraska? I guess you mean Omaha?
