“McCain will go off TV in Michigan, stop dropping mail there and send most of his staff to more competitive states, including Wisconsin, Ohio and Florida.”It's a good move, but it doesn't go far enough. As I stated back in August, this campaign doesn't need to win Michigan, Pennsylvania or Wisconsin. While I think PA is worth fighting for, we should move past Wisky(which hasn't had a poll showing McCain in the lead since MAY) and focus our energies on the key states. Those states are: Ohio, Colorado, Virginia and Nevada...in that order...play defense in states like Florida and North Carolina...and keep pushing in Pennsylvania.
Right now the McCain camp doesn't have the time, money or staff to waste in states it doesn't need. They should focus on what it can win and where they have shown the best signs of life.
The winning map, as I see it, is pictured below.
