Barack Obama holds his lead in the NPR's Electoral Outlook. Political editor Ken Rudin isn't as generous to the Illinois Senator as Karl Rove, who has Obama at 313 electoral votes. Rudin is keeping Obama at 273 for now. John McCain has lost ground since our last map update, sliding from 174 to 163 after Rudin moved Missouri from Leaning McCain to Tossup.
