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.

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.

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.

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.
