9 PM Update: With McCain Closing Obama's Leads in Fla. and NC, He Retains an Outside Chance to Get to 270 and Win
McCain has now narrowed Obama's lead to three points in both Florida and NC with less than half the vote counted in each state. He still leads more substantially than predicted in Virginia and narrrowly in Indiana. Should he sweep all these states -- and go on to win Missouri and Ohio -- the race is going to be much closer in the electoral college than it looked even an hour ago.
Even if McCain wins all these states, however, he still needs to pick a state or two like Colorado to win.
