Poll: Obama Maintains Wisconsin Lead
President Obama maintains a double-digit lead over Mitt Romney in Wisconsin, according to a new Marquette Law School poll released on Wednesday.
As the race for the state's 10 Electoral College votes reaches the final stretch, the poll shows Obama leading Romney 53 percent to 42 percent among likely voters, with 3 percent of respondents undecided. In the previous Marquette poll conducted two weeks prior to the new survey, Obama held a 14-point lead, 54 percent to 40 percent — though the result was considered a relative outlier when compared with other public surveys

7. Maybe a little early for Cong polling.
There's 435 seats up, so polling is hit and miss. Many congressional candidates will have internal polling (and some undoubtedly already do). But these are not always released to the public.
The congressional race polls will increasingly be released as we approach election day, but probably only for the closest and high visibility contests.
Projecting house seat gains is difficult, therefore. But we will have a good idea on how it's shaping up soon.
Dems are clearly going to gain seats this year. I think everybody's on board with that fact. The question is, will Pelosi have the gavel?
All this is AFAIK. Maybe somebody can correct or amplify this.
