AP EXCLUSIVE: Obama ahead or tied in 8 key states

[WCR note: In our opinion this AP poll is seriously flawed in that it solely contacted voters who had land-line telephones. That is a tainted sample. The end result would be the same since it shows Obama as probably winning but this poll most likely underestimates the support for Sen. Obama since support for Sen. McCain is greater among traditional land-line phone users who would tend to be older and better off.]

Barack Obama, gunning for a national landslide, now leads in four states won by President Bush in 2004 and is essentially tied with John McCain in two other Republican red states, according to new AP-GfK battleground polling.

The results help explain why the Democrat is pressing his money and manpower advantages in a slew of traditionally GOP states, hoping not just for a win but a transcendent victory that remakes the nation’s political map. McCain is scrambling to defend states where he wouldn’t even be campaigning if the race were closer.
