President Obama has opened up a huge 14-point lead in Wisconsin, according to a new Marquette Laws School Poll.
Mitt Romney’s selection of Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan solidified the Badger State as a battleground, but a successful month for Obama and continuing campaign woes for Romney have blunted the GOP’s momentum there. The Marquette University Law School poll released Wednesday shows Obama leading Romney among likely Wisconsin voters, 54 percent to 40 percent. http://2012.talkingpointsmemo.com/...
Cue the RNC response: (Scrambles!)
Wisconsin is a crucial swing state that the Obama Campaign is clearly worried about losing. The President turned his back on his most loyal supporters during the recall election, has been absent from the state for over 200 days, and has implemented policies that have made Wisconsinites worse off. Now, after seeing the growing Republican momentum and enthusiastic support for Governor Romney and Congressman Ryan’s plan to strengthen Wisconsin’s small business and middle class families, the President is scrabbling to regain the support he’s lost since the 2008 election. President Obama’s upcoming visit to Milwaukee, paired with ad buys to be released next week show a President desperate to hang on to a state his campaign once thought was safely in their camp. In November, Wisconsin voters will choose a new direction and prove them wrong. http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/...The Marquette poll is probably an outlier. Other polls have shown Pres. Obama with a single digit lead in the state. Then again, Pres. Obama did win the state by 14-points in 2008. But hey, the RNC's response...hilarious!
