I have no particular insight into the accuracy of Quinnipiac's polling but they've got John McCain down 12 in Pennsylvania, down 6 in Ohio, and down 4 in Florida. Obviously, with numbers like that McCain is toasty. Obama has a couple of plausible paths to the nomination that don't involve either Ohio or Florida but McCain needs them both.
