(Studio: John King) The changing state-level and electoral college poll numbers for Senators Barack Obama and John McCain examined; maps shown.

(Studio: John King) Live "Strategy Session" held with former Mitt Romney spokesman Kevin Madden and Huffington Post political director Hilary Rosen about the presidential election map. [ROSEN - says Obama was not campaigning this week, so a little slippage is not surprising.] [MADDEN - says when voters learn about Obama they find he is out to the left so the job of the McCain camp is to provide this information to the voter; suggests McCain say "he is just not ready."] [ROSEN - says Obama is where a majority of the American people are, not McCain; suggests Obama would match up in town meetings.] Other material: memo from Democratic pollster Peter Hart about the perception gap for Democrats about whether Obama is ready quoted.

King, John
