    According to the PPP Poll soon to be released, Obama's lead in WI is down to 2.

    49% to 47%. They said there was a huge shift in the results when they did the poll on Friday. The previous poll they did had Obama up by 7 in WI.

    Barack Obama leads our new Wisconsin poll by only 2 points, 49-47. He led by 7 at 52-45 two weeks ago.

    It took 48 hours for effect of debate to really kick in and same could be true with jobs report, if there's going to be an effect from that

    PublicPolicyPolling ‏@ppppolls
    Wisconsin voters think Romney won the debate 61-25, 60-19 among independents

    Not going to get in habit of providing full day by day breakouts, but our Friday interviews were worse for Obama in WI and VA than Thursday

    PPP is a Democrat organization, and is still probably oversampling Democrat turnout using the basis of the 2008 turnout.

    While that metric is technically defensable, everyone knows it is a joke.


    Sounds like Wisconsin is firmly in Romney territory now.

    Winning.........and who knew?

    McCain got blown out in Wisconsin in '08. The fact that it is even in play says alot. Rasmussen said this past summer that even if Wisconsin was competitive ( but still with Obama winning) it would "be a good night for the GOP".

    This state is all you have to watch on election night..........if Romney is even within 2-3 points, the GOP wins in a landslide nationwide.:badgrin::badgrin::D

    Obama will win Wisconsin thus sweeping both home states of the GOP ticket. He'll also win the Presidency as well.
