Could Barack Obama Win in a Landslide?

A while back Republican strategists imagined a situation where John McCain would sweep the election. Now, it's Barack Obama's team picturing a generous November for its candidate.

The case for a strong Obama showing on Nov. 4 includes his muscular organization in swing states, his popularity among first-time voters, a surge in newly registered Democrats, and indications that he can pick up at least nine George W. Bush-voting states. A new poll showing Obama up by five in typically-red Virginia, adds a piece of support to the landslide pie.

Right now Obama is up eight points in Gallup's (volatile) national tracking poll. As for Electoral College predictions, when leaners are included Obama has 255 compared to McCain's 227. Do all signs point to an Obama landslide?
