Was it all worth it?

Was it all worth it? is a nifty site that shows United States maps overlayed with head-to-head polling between Clinton/Obama v. McCain.

In their polling data released today, an Obama v. McCain race yields the Democrats only two new states, Iowa and Colorado. Likewise, the Republicans pick up New Hampshire and Pennyslvania, as well as hang onto Ohio. In the simulation Obama loses the general election 243 to 269.

The map and its accompanying polls beg one significant question: where did Barack Obama?s wins in Idaho, Utah, Wyoming, Nebraska, Missouri, North Dakota, Lousiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, Alaska, and Virginia go? The answer is: right into the hands of the Republicans.
