Poll: Obama leads By Just 3 In Wisconsin

  • Print

Contrary to the absurdly skewed MU Law poll touted by the local media showing Obama with a gigantic 14-point lead here,  Rasmussen finds that Obama's Wisconsin lead is just 3 point.  That tracks with where the candidates were in July.


The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the Badger State finds Obama with 49% support to Romney’s 46%. Two percent (2%) prefer some other candidate, while another two percent (2%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

In mid-August, following Romney’s selection of hometown Congressman Paul Ryan as his running mate, it was Romney 48%, Obama 47%. Prior to that survey in late July, Obama led Romney 49% to 46%. The president has earned 45% to 52% of the vote in surveys since October of last year, while Romney has picked up 41% to 48% of the vote in that same time period.

Wisconsin remains one of eight Toss-Up states in the Rasmussen Reports Electoral College Projections The candidates remain virtually tied in the daily Presidential Tracking Poll.
