McCain is also leading in every region other than the northeast among these national polls.
Looking geographically, Obama will do very well in New England and the mid-Atlantic region. McCain is slightly ahead in Virginia and Florida, and pretty solid in all of the other southern states. Obama has thin leads in the upper midwest area such as Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. The Great Plains/Rocky Mountain states are pretty solid for McCain, except for Colorado, Nevada, and New Mexico. Pacific coast states are pretty solid Obama.
The election may well be decided by Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Florida, and Colorado.
