McCain might have even won without the financial crisis.  On the day that it started he was leading in all the national polls.
Well, to be fair, that was right after the RNC.
And let's not forget it was before the Palin interviews with Katy Couric and Charlie Gibson (and subsequent SNL parodies).

I agree McCain would have held IN, NC, FL, NE2, but even without the financial collapse the economy had been slowing and the war in Iraq was very unpopular as was Bush. Country wanted a change.
