Fun with numbers

First a video:

Ok folks, here’s some numbers for you:

Of the 30 states that Bush carried in 2000, Obama holds a lead in 10 of them. Additionally, McCain has lost GOP support in all but seven of the states that Bush carried. The most striking of these, and two that Obama currently has leads in, are Montana and North Dakota. Obama holds leads of 3% in both – and the GOP support has collapsed -28 and -30 points respectively since 2000. Montana and North Dakota! Bush won these two states by 25% and 27%! Are you kidding me?!

Other tidbits:

Support for the GOP has collapsed +15 points in Virginia, North Carolna, Wyoming, Indiana, and (you betcha) Alaska. That’s right, despite have America’s favorite governor (/snark), McCain has lost 15 points of support since 2000. HAhaHAhaha..

Though not leading them, Obama is down by 10% or less in West Virginia, Mississippi, Georgia and Indiana.

Anyway, here’s a handy chart I made up, read ‘em and weep.
