    This doesn't seem right at all.

    Lies, dammed lies and opinion polls.

    - even if the pollsters have no overt political bias there are so many ways to get innacurate poll results.

    By this he would have 355 of the 270 needed to win.

    The assumption is that Obama would win all States where he has even a slight lead. Most polls show the results as "solid Obama" and "leaning Obama", which generally show Obama as just under or just over the 270 mark based on the solid States.
