RCP Polls: Obama Wins Election Without Tossups

According to Real Clear Politics, Obama has now safely won the election.

Rather, even if Obama were to lose every single one of the toss-up states, he would still have over 270 electoral votes (277, to be exact).

This means that not only does McCain need to be compaigning to win a clean sweap of all eight of the toss-up states - including Colorado, Florida, and Ohio, which all currently give Obama a lead - he's got to also figure out a way to take away a big blue Obama state, like Virginia (which is now pretty much in Obama's column), Minnesotta, or Wisconsin. That's nearly impossible without a big October surprise.
