6. Obama's are all 44-49. McCain's are all 40-44.
That's a four or five point spread on average.

And I think Gallup's polls tend to overselect McCain's voters.

Also, McCain's 40-44% is an average national number. In 10 states he has right at double digit leads, so he's getting hammered in all but about 15-20 states.
