Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Marquette University Law School released a new poll for Wisconsin, which look great for the President and ok for Tammy Baldwin.


Obama (53%) leads Romney (42%). Not as big as the last Marquette margin of 14 points, but obviously holding steady in the 50% territory.

Baldwin (48%) still leads Thompson (44%), but not by as much as the last poll, where she held a 9 point lead.


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

A bit of analysis from the story.

Wisconsin independents support Obama over Romney 49 to 40 percent.

In the U.S. Senate race, Baldwin has the lead among women, 54 to 38 percent,  and Thompson has the lead among men, 50 to 41 percent.

Obama has a solid lead over Romney among women, 61-36 and Romney holds a slight lead over the president among men, 50-41 percent.

The poll was done Sept. 27-30. One-thousand registered voters were interviewed, and of those, there were 894 likely voters.

A quick update:
In case you had not heard...Obama will be in WI on Thursday after the debates for an afternoon rally in Madison. Should be a sea of people out to greet POTUS.
