Mitt Romney now leads President Obama for the first time in Wisconsin where the president's support has fallen to its lowest level to date.
The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters shows Romney with 47% of the vote to Obamas 44%. Five percent (5%) prefer some other candidate, and four percent (4%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Prior to this survey, Obama's support in the state has ranged from 45% to 52%, while Romney has earned 41% to 45%. Last month, the numbers were Obama 49%, Romney 45%. The president led his likely Republican challenger by 11 points in March - 52% to 41%.
Just last week Republican Governor Scott Walker won a special recall election prompted by Democrats outraged over his successful move to limit collective bargaining rights for some unionized public employees in order to reduce Wisconsin's budget deficit.
Most voters (51%) in the state view public employee unions unfavorably, while 46% share a favorable opinion of them. This includes 33% with a Very Unfavorable view of the unions and 27% with a Very Favorable one. The president draws overwhelming support from voters who view public employee unions favorably, while Romney draws equally heavy support from those who view them unfavorably.
Forty-seven percent (47%) of voters in Wisconsin approve of the job Obama is doing, while 52% disapprove. These findings include 27% who Strongly Approve of the presidents job performance and 44% who Strongly Disapprove. These ratings are comparable to those measured nationally in the Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll.
Romney is viewed favorably by 49% of Wisconsin voters and unfavorably by 45%. These numbers include Very Favorable reviews from 23% and Very Unfavorable ones by 30%.

I think Obama is secretly hoping that ObamaCare will be found UnConstitutional. That way he figures he’ll be able to excite his base.
Solid? No. I was very close in 2000 (though with Nader votes Gore would have won by 4 points) and it was very close in 2004 (Kerry stole it) and is extremely competitive at the state level.
Wrong. Conservatives could, moderate RINO's couldn't.
“moderate” “RINOs” did just that which is why Romney is going to be the candidate. Conservatives were split between Cain (a typical deadletter for conservatives), Newt (another not going to happen), Santorum (great man but running without a political base, almost impossible), Michelle (needed seasoning), Perry (if he had had a shotgun he would have blown off a leg). So the Conservative votes were divided up among FIVE candidates and I am just speaking of Republicans not Ron Paul.
How is a conservative candidate going to win given THAT?
This is exactly what happened in 2008 as well. Rather than unify behind a realistic candidate to thwart McCain the Right went after one allegedly conservative after the other.
What do you think about Romney’s chances in Massachusetts?
Two fly overs and no on the ground support in their greatest time of need...why would he expect any positive support from Wisconsin unions?
Probably too much to overcome, but you never know.
but also Georgia and Texas?????
Neither of those will ever be blue if so the country is dead.
that’s for damn sure.
Never underestimate a liberal republican’s willingness to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
This poll is fabricated. Obama won the exit polls the other night by 9 pts or so. I know this because the MSM told me so.
Hope Romney doesn’t peak too early.
There is no way in any world that Obama loses wisconsin and Michigan but wins Virginia and north Carolina. It. Will. Not. Happen.
North Carolina may be a stretch this time, but I bet he wins Virginia again.
Obama will not win anything but the deep blue states. He will lose the national election by at least 7% and more likely 9%-10%. The economy is stalling again. How well do you think his polling numbers will be after another month or two like this one where the job report craters and previous months are re-adjusted down yet again. Romney is already beating him in nearly every Likely Voter poll nationally and he has not even gotten a boost yet from being on the national stage at the GOP convention. He is already beating the O at fundraising - a sitting president beating out-raised by a challenger. LOL!
Like him or not, everything Romney has attempted to date has been characterized by determination. There will be no insane "suspension" of this campaign.
I have an idea. Why don't you draw a nice hot bath, take a few slugs of a decent scotch, a fresh razor, and open a vein. Geez. Life must not be worth living for the likes of you.
Well, who knows what he is privately hoping for. But we can be sure he will attempt to make the best of whatever transpires. This asshole won't be going down without a fight-- you can take that to the bank.
