Wisconsin poll Obama: 44 McCain: 43; McCain 50 Clinton 38
Edited on Sat Mar-29-08 09:25 PM by book_worm
Here in the Badger State a new poll shows a tight contest between Barack Obama and John McCain with Obama with a slight edge 44% to 43%. If the Dem nominee is Hillary Clinton--McCain gains a double digit advantage: 50-38.

This comes off a poll of Oregon showing Obama leading McCain 48-42, but Clinton losing to McCain 46-40.

5. No, Wisconsin is the most purple state in the nation
Gore won it by 5,000 votes and Kerry by 11,000.

7. I doubt it,, remember 22% of Clinton voters said they would vote for McCain.. if we can get most of
them to come to their senses Obama's number will jump quickly.

This poll reflects both Clintons and McCain attacking him. (with a little help from Shrub too)

10. Kerry only won it by 11,000 votes
Definitely not a state we can take for granted.

8. Yep. That's pretty much what I figured for the Midwest.
Look for this to be repeated in Iowa, Minnesota, Michigan, etc.

Hillary cannot beat McCain in the Midwest.

11. Wisconsin hasn't went red for a while
But the last few elections, our margins of victory have been very small. It's a swing state and it's also a state we must carry if we want to win the election.
