McCain Gains in Wisconsin

leave a comment »


Rasmussen Reports released three new state polling results today in Wisconsin, Washington state and Massachusetts. In Wisconsin, the race has tighten up as Obama’s 11-percentage point lead has dwindled to four. He is ahead of McCain 47 percent to 43 percent. Right now though, I doubt Packer management could get 43 percent.

Obama’s lead in Washington has dropped to a 12-percentage point advantage. Rasmussen also reports that the race has “tighten up” in Massachusetts with Obama leading 51 percent to 36 percent. I don’t think Democrats in Seattle and Boston are too concerned.

Rasmussen will also release polling from Missouri and Michigan at 3 p.m. today.

UPDATE: Rasmussen is reporting that McCain has basically held his seven percentage point lead in Missouri. In Michigan, the result is exactly the opposite with Obama continuing his seven percentage point lead.

Oh, by the way, Obama leads the useless national poll by one-percentage point for the 8th straight day, according to Rasmussen. Yes, the country is split.
