    Zogby Poll: Building Mo-bama! Democrat Leads McCain in Electoral College Tally, 273-160

    The Democrat also leads 44% to 38% in the nationwide horserace test as Libertarian Bob Barr wins 6%

    UTICA, New York – As the race for President passes the Independence Day holiday and heads toward the dog days of summer, Sen. Barack Obama holds a 44% to 38% lead over Sen. John McCain in the horserace contest, but also leads by a substantial margin in a state-by-state Electoral College tally, a new Zogby Interactive poll shows.

    The extensive national poll of of 46,274 likely voters also shows Libertarian candidate and former Congressman Bob Barr wins 6% support, eating into McCain’s needed conservative base of support.

    ...

    This latest extensive survey of all 50 states reveals that while Obama holds a narrow lead in the national preference test, he holds a substantial advantage right now in the Electoral College. Using this survey - and an average of other public state polls in certain states to corroborate the Zogby results – Zogby calculates that Obama leads McCain, 273-160. A total of 11 states with 105 electoral votes are within the margin of error and therefore too close to call. A candidate needs 270 to be elected President.

    I think it's still to early to tell. There are plenty of uncommitted voters.

    Whether one supports him or not, it looks like America is going to make history with the first black POTUS.
