Battleground snapshot: Obama expands lead, Romney craters
I've been doing these snapshots a week or so apart, but after the flood of new polling the last few days, the numbers are begging to be updated. Also, it doesn't hurt they look fantastic for Team Obama:
Those are the TPM polling composites. In every state that has been polled the last three days, Obama is up universally. Every. Single. State.
He is over 50 percent at Michigan, Nevada and Wisconsin. Indeed, this is the last time I'm including Michigan in this list. It joins Missouri, New Mexico and Pennsylvania as states off the map. Not that it ever was truly in play, but the data has now caught up to the reality.
Look at North Carolina! The president is coming on strong. In fact, Obama now leads in the state in the RCP and Pollster composites. Those polling aggregators roll their older polling off more quickly off their averages, because the latest batch of Carolina polling is all bad news for Team Red. In fact, if you want to smile, check out those recent polls. The last two polls on that list? Conservative outfits.
But here's the craziest thing about the last three days worth of numbers: Mitt Romney's percentage went down in every state except one, Ohio. On the other hand, Obama's went up in every single state. Check it out:

1. Thanks for the data!
I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creatures, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again. Stephan Grellet
