    When you review electoral map, all McCain has to do is win his base to win the election.[...]We are very competitive in every Republican state and I anticipate winning all of them.  McCain will win every state Bush won in 2004 plus a couple more.

    What on Earth is this man talking about?  Has he seen the poll numbers for some of these states?  They're not going to get Iowa, New Mexico, Colorado, Nevada, Virginia, and possibly North Carolina.

      if he sweeps all the states you just listed. The problem for McCain is...

      He's down 13 in Iowa,

      he's down 10 in New Mexico,

      he's down 6 in Colorado,

      he's down 4 in Nevada,

      he's down 4 in Florida (bonus!)

      he's down 7 in Virginia, and

      he's down 1 in North Carolina

      and he has to win ALL of them. ALL of them. OK, I take that back - he can afford to lose two out of these four Bush states - Iowa, Colorado, New Mexico and Nevada. But he must win every other state on the list. Losing IA, NV and NM means a tie, which he will lose.

      I like our odds. But leave everything on the road.
