Four polls conducted in August showed John McCain with modest lead--anywhere between 2 and 6 points--in North Carolina. A new SurveyUSA poll of likely voters conducted Saturday through Monday shows McCain-Palin leading Obama-Biden 58 percent to 38 percent.

McCain has also shored up support in Montana--another red state that looked like it might be teetering toward Obama. In July, one Rasmussen poll showed McCain losing the state to Obama by 5 points; in another poll McCain was ahead by a single point. The latest from Rasmussen shows McCain up 11 points.

So much for Team Obama's 50 state strategy.
