The Map

NPR Electoral Count: Obama 269, McCain 200

NPR's Ken Rudin has once more gazed into his crystal ball. This time he came up with some good news for Barack Obama. The big shift in the NPR-NewsHour Election Map towards Obama is based on Rudin moving Florida from Leaning McCain to Tossup. He also took Pennsylvania out of Tossup and branded it Leaning Obama — for the time being.

As of today the NPR-NewsHour Election Map lists McCain with 200 EVs and Obama with 269. Those numbers include states that are Strong and Leaning.
