I haven't seen a diary about this yet, but things are looking up in Wisconsin. Enough to make anyone smile:Rasmussen Wisconsin Poll  

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in Wisconsin shows Barack Obama earning 50% of the vote while John McCain attracts support from 39%. This is a big improvement for Obama who held a statistically insignificant two point lead in the state a month ago. Last month’s poll was taken just before Hillary Clinton dropped out of the race. When "leaners" are included in the current totals, it’s Obama 52% and McCain 42%.

Unfortunately, Rasmussen doesn't release many crosstabs on the poll but there is this nugget in the story:

Obama leads by twenty-three points among women while McCain has a slight edge among male voters. Obama attracts a majority of the vote in all age groups under 65. McCain holds a six-point edge among senior citizens.

This is great news that comes after yesterday's North Dakota Poll from Rasmussen that shows a tied race: Rasmussen North Dakota Numbers

Now I can hear my grandpa saying to me:

Don't count your turds before they make the toilet

But Wisconsin is looking good for us, and McCain should think twice before dumping any resources there. Things will be sunny in Madison come November.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
