    The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Wisconsin Voters shows the president and his Republican challenger each earning 49% support. One percent (1%) likes another candidate, and two percent (2%) are undecided.

    A week ago, the president held a slight 50% to 48% lead. Earlier in the month, he was ahead 51% to 49%.

    Ninety-six percent (96%) of Badger State voters say they are sure to vote in this election. Romney leads 51% to 47% among these voters.

    Among the 90% who say they’ve already made up their minds whom they will vote for, it’s Romney 51%, Obama 48%.

    Romney has a six-point lead over Obama – 50% to 44% - among all voters in the state when they are asked which candidate they trust more to handle the economy.

    Mitt Romney is now tied with Barack Obama in Wisconsin, one of the 'firewall' states the president hoped would protect him against defeats in Florida and Virginia, according to a new poll.

    Rasmussen found that Romney and Obama were tied on 49 per cent in the state, which Obama won in a 14-point landslide in 2008.

    Buoyed by internal polling which shows similar numbers, Romney is to head to Wisconsin next week, as first reported by MailOnline last Tuesday. He will hold a rally in the Milwaukee area on Tuesday morning.

  3. Intrade is offering Romney-win-Wisconsin at around 31/100.

    Sounds like a good deal, if you think he'll win. Nate Silver, whose multi-poll analysis makes more sense than Rasmussen alone, puts the odds of Romney winning around 15%.

    Still, if you think Romney will win, all you have to do now is borrow money from your parents, so you can place a bet on Intrade.
