The polls over at fivethirtyeight.com, which I've been following more feverishly the past few weeks than my "American" daughter's Facebook status, show Obama winning the electoral vote 340 to 198.

It's the first time McCain has slipped under the 200 mark since I started consulting the site right after the Republican convention. At that point, McCain was leading by a couple of dozen electoral votes. But the times seem to be a'changing...
