No one on John McCain’s team will ever admit this (before the election, at least), but his campaign is rapidly curling up into the political fetal position.
Two weeks ago, they stopped seriously contesting Michigan, once a promising and electoral-vote-rich target that Democrats have carried for four straight elections.

That leaves Pennsylvania and Minnesota as the only two blue states that McCain is now actively seeking to win over, but his polling numbers in both of those states have collapsed in the past two weeks.
