    Great news for Obama from today's polls, according to 538.com.

    Today's Polls, 10/23: McCain on Life Support

    This is not the time when John McCain can afford a bad polling day. And yet he's had perhaps his worst one of the year.

    The national trackers were essentially a push -- three moved toward Obama, two toward McCain, two were flat -- but the action today is at the state level. And boy, there is a lot of action: 29 new state polls enterring our database. And many of them contain great news for Obama.

    Daily Kos is saying, "McCain Concedes."

    and Politico says the GOP is forming a "circular firing squad," with top McCain aides sending out their resumes for a new job.

    "With despair rising even among many of John McCain’s own advisors, influential Republicans inside and outside his campaign are engaged in an intense round of blame-casting and rear-covering—-much of it virtually conceding that an Election Day rout is likely.

    A McCain interview published Thursday in the Washington Times sparked the latest and most nasty round of Washington finger-pointing, with senior GOP hands close to President Bush and top congressional aides denouncing the candidate for what they said was an unfocused message and poorly executed campaign.
