Latest State-by-State General Election Match-Ups

Here are our latest additions to CQ Politics state-by-state general election match-ups. There might be a little *d’j’ vu* in our repeating of the Rasmussen Reports polls in New York and Alabama, but that’s because they are more recent than the ones SurveyUSA released today.


**New York:** Obama leads McCain 52 percent to 33 percent while Hillary Clinton leads him 59 percent to 29 percent according to a Rasmussen Reports poll released May 29. In a SurveyUSA poll conducted May 16-18, Obama leads John McCain 48 percent to 38 percent with 14 percent undecided. The margin of error is 4.1 percent. Obama has a 27 point lead among women voters and an 83 percent to 7 percent lead among black voters, who make up 14 percent of the sample. Independents prefer McCain by 13 points. Clinton was not included in the poll.
