Very good news, as this is a non-partisan poll:

A new poll says Wisconsin's U.S. Senate race is a tossup between Democratic incumbent Russ Feingold and Republican challenger Ron Johnson.

The St. Norbert College Survey Center poll shows Johnson ahead, 49% to 47%. The margin of error is 5% points.

. . .

The St. Norbert poll is sponsored by Wisconsin Public Radio. It questioned 402 registered likely voters between Oct. 12 and Friday.

I've never heard of this polling outfit before, so perhaps several grains of salt are in order.  I look forward to Nate Silver's analysis.  If he believes it is significant, than Russ Feingold, who many have recently left for dead, is very much still in the game.

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.
