Obama vs. McCain in 2006

Pollster SurveyUSA posted yesterday the results of a poll of 30,000 Americans (600 from every state) looking at a matchup of Barack Obama and John McCain.

The catch? The poll was conducted in 2006. See the site for yourself here.

In the poll, Obama carried just Illinois, Hawaii and Washington D.C. leading to a Mondale/Reagan-esque landslide in the Electoral College 510 for McCain to just 28 for Obama. I think it’s safe to say we won’t see this kind of thing tonight, but who knows anymore?

Based on this though, it is stunning how far Obama has come.
