While the latest Quinnipiac University/Wall Street Journal/Washingtonpost.Com Poll/Goodyear Tires poll shows Obama enjoying healthy leads over McCain in Colorado, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Turning these numbers around?  Might need some divine help.

"Sen. Obama's leads in these four battleground states are as large as they have been the entire campaign. Those margins may be insurmountable barring a reversal that has never been seen before in the modern era in which polling monitors public opinion throughout the campaign," said Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.


Pollster John Zobgy hasn't thrown in the towel.  For McCain to win, he needs to defend.  He's got to defend the Bush states of 2004.   Zogby admits Iowa is a lost cause.  So, Ohio, Florida, Virginia and North Carolina are all but necessities.
