A new CNN Electoral Map out today that puts Virginia in the hands of Senator Barack Obama has shifted enough electoral votes nationally for him to take the election, now only 20 days away.
New polls in Virginia, a battleground state, now show Senator Barack Obama with a double digit lead. These include CNN's own poll, as well as a host of others.
This once again puts Senator John McCain on the defense in states that the Republicans should have locked down early in this election. CNN does note that this is a "snapshot in time" and there are still 20 days left in the election.
