Huge polling day for Obama

The Obama train has officially left the station, and it looks like it's going to be hard to stop.

Quinnipac, a very well-respected national polling agency, released this morning a series of pre- and post-debate swing state polls from Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Florida. All of these polls show Obama ahead by 5-8 points. All of these polls show Obama gaining 1-2 points immediately following the first debate. Remember, assuming Obama holds Michigan and Pennsylvania (which went to Kerry in the 2004 election), Obama needs to win just one other major swing state to win the election. McCain needs to win them all.

This is quickly becoming a show-stopper for McCain. His ship is sinking, and I think he knows it.
