Obama has narrow lead in Electoral votes, but McCain is shaky in four states
RealClear Politics has Obama leading McCain 272 to 266 in Electoral votes, based on polling. But McCain is winning four states with a total of 45 Electoral votes (Indiana, Michigan, New Hampshire and Virginia) by just 2 points or less. Obama's only tight margin is in Ohio (20 Electoral votes), where he's ahead 44 to 42.7.
