Here's the latest national electoral map published in The Ticket courtesy of Karl Rove & Co.
New state polls -- 39 in all -- conducted in the first three days of this month show the Democratic ticket of Obama/Biden continuing to lead Republican McCain/Palin and, indeed, over the weekend acquiring just enough hypothetical electoral votes to win the presidency.
For the first time since mid-July, Obama has more than the necessary 270 electoral votes (273) with the movement from the toss-up captegory into his column of Minnesota and New Hampshire.
Rove's analysis indicates that Obama will carry every state won by John Kerry in 2004 with the addition of New Mexico, Iowa and Colorado. Colorado is surprising since it is considered one of the more conservative states. In addition, Obama is slightly ahead in Florida and Indiana although they are still considered toss-ups.
