States are allocated in Rove's exercise based on an average of public polls, which many pollsters would tell you is a rather unscientific way to look at the data.
Still, for political junkies the information is interesting.
In the first map from Karl Rove & Co., McCain leads Obama in a hypothetical match-up, winning states totaling 238 electoral votes to Obama's 221 electoral votes.
There are 538 total electoral votes. At least 270 are needed to win the presidency.
The trend is positive for Obama -- he is up 14 electoral votes from May 11, and McCain is down 13 electoral votes.
