New polls paint bleak battleground map for McCain campaign

Four new polls released Thursday found a bleak outlook for John McCain, even in traditionally Republican states, and a potential landslide victory for Democrat Barack Obama on Nov. 4. The polls found McCain trailing in the battleground states of Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania and behind even in red states such as Indiana. "If these numbers hold up, (Obama) could win the biggest Democratic landslide since Lyndon Johnson in 1964," said Peter Brown of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, which conducted one of the polls.
