Red-Blue balance shifts in US electoral map ?

According to a BBC analysis, "one of the many things that makes this (America's presidential) election so intriguing is that perhaps the old paradigm of 'Red States' (those that voted for George W Bush) and 'Blue States' (Al Gore or John Kerry states) may be less relevant". If that is accurate, it means Republican candidate John McCain , as I have reasoned earlier in an entry in Clare Street, "certainly cannot take the American heartland for granted" in his bid for the top post.

A lot of Americans are suffering from "Bush fatigue", and a possible McCain presidency would be perceived as a Bush 3rd Term.

Many people would vote Obama just to break away from the past 8 years.

Has the 'Bush fatigue' overwhelmed the average and traditional American aversion to Concentration of Power (of both Congress and White House) in one party ? I don't know. Please enlighten.
