    GOP makes gains in Wisconsin


    Blue Wisconsin may be flashing red.

    Republican Senate hopeful Tommy Thompson holds a double digit lead over his Democratic opponent Rep. Tammy Baldwin, according to a poll released Friday, the day after polls found Romney edging the president in his running mate’s home state.

    A Rasmussen poll released Friday found former Wisconsin Gov. Thompson leading Baldwin 54 percent to 43 percent.

    That’s a big jump for Thompson in the days following his primary win and the choice of Congressman Paul Ryan as the Republican vice presidential nominee. A Marquette University Law School poll conducted last week found him leading, but by a much tighter, 48-to-43 percent margin. A CBS/New York Times/Quinnipiac poll last week had the two tied at 47 percent.

    Rasmussen found a similar rightward swing in a presidential poll in the Badger State conducted Wednesday. In their poll, Romney led 48-47 over President Obama. But a CNN/Opinion Research poll conducted Monday and Tuesday following the announcement of Ryan as the vice presidential choice found Obama with a 4-point lead in the state. Earlier polls have found Obama leading in the state, which he won in 2008.

    The race to fill retiring Democratic Sen. Herb Kohl’s seat is expected to be one of the most hotly contested of the cycle. It is also one of the races that will determine which party controls the Senate.

    I predict the usual suspects are going to drop a meaningless poll on this thread momentarily.

    I hear you. The polls are meaningless when they go against Obama.

    Well they're meaningless when they over sample Democrats by 10%.

    Oops, not one person in this thread will to declare that Rasmussen is reliable.

    That prompts the question, why are you posting and cheering polls you don't even trust?

    lol

    Man, the closer we get to Election Day, the dumber you get. You know, they prescribe something for that. It's called a full dose of STFU!

    Omg another time to put a beatdown on you. You believe the nbc poll even when the head of nbc political news said it was a sham, so stop posting on this, you have no credibility

    Obama is running campaign ads in both California and New York.
