Stasis In The USA ELection.

On the subject of electoral maps, it's interesting to see that according to Real Clear Politics, the state by state political map of the USA hasn't changed in 4 weeks despite considerable poll fluctuations in that time. The electoral college vote would probably have been 273 for Obama to 265 for McCain had an election taken place at any point in the last few weeks. I can't copy the maps onto here unfortunately.

Yes, but that ignores the toss-up states and assumes they would vote as of the last election. After Slow Joe Biden stated categorically in Ohio that there will be no more coal plants built in America, they may have handed Pennsylvania and Virginia to McCain. On the other hand, neither McCain or Palin have come up with any equivalent doozies.
