Public Policy Polling ^ | 6 October 2012 | PPP

Posted on 10/06/2012 5:25:15 PM PDT by Lexinom

PPP's newest Wisconsin poll finds a big debate bump for Mitt Romney in the state. Two weeks ago he trailed Barack Obama by 7 points there, 52-45. Now he's pulled to within two points, with Obama's lead now just 49-47.

Wisconsin is smarter than the polls!!! I am confident they’ll pull for Ryan as they did for Walker.

I don’t believe this poll. I don’t believe Obama will get over 45% in November. Wisconsin elected a Republican govenor twice in a year and the second time by a wider margin. These crap polls are probably making Wisconsin voters increase that margin for the presidential election.

By comparisson, PPP, in the recall election, had Walker up by 5% LV and 4% RV. He won by 7%.

Project that 2-3% error into this one and it’s even or Romney up 1%.

Republicans are pretty fired up in this state-or so it would appear if you look at the primary:

Wisconsin Republican primary voter turnout surged more than 91 percent in 2012 from 410,607 voters in 2008 to over 785,000 on Tuesday.

A lot of dems are in for some heartbreak come November 7th from believing all these ‘polls’. You better believe I will be the guy standing there smiling holding a sign that says “WE HAD AN ELECTION, YOU LOST”.

Don't worry, Chuck Todd will point that out tomorrow.

Living in Wisconsin I can tell you though that there actually are people here who will vote for Obama and Scott Walker.

This camp is made up of people who are taxpayers and like the fact Walker lowered their taxes and cut our noveau riche public teachers and their fat pensions down to size.

However this same voter also doesn’t trust the boss, the man, rich guys, etc. They won’t vote Romney in a national election. So I don’t think we will get 1 for 1 correlation Walker for Romney voting here.

That said, I think Romney has a chance for a 10,000 vote type squeaker win here.

I played with the EC map at 270towin.com and I think OH will be the Ground Zero of the 2012 election. If Romney wins it, he is going to be President for sure. Nothing else matters. 306 R 232 D. If Obama wins OH, he can win by a close margin, 271 to 267.

We’ll have to see how it goes with the vice presidential debate and the remaining presidential debates that are going to be held this month before we can say for sure which man is going to win this fall.

I think Romney/Ryan will carry the state of WI.

Being that they elected a Republican senator and governor in 2010 and just recently defeated the recall effort of Gov. Walker, I can't picture that state voting to re-elect Obama. Especially since they have one of their own on the GOP ticket.

PPP is strictly a push poll operation by the left wing ‘Kos’.
Any results it produces in any direction are worthless.

I’ve been contacted by them twice.

On most questions, they only give you answer options that fit with a lib-left narrative.It’s laughable.

IND is the bellwether state... in 2008 it was a long night there and in the end Obama won it narrowly.

Romney needs to win it by better than 20 points or its going to be another long night.

I go shooting in southeast WI, and getting there involves driving down a number of secondary roads through farm country and smaller towns...during the Walker recall it was interesting to watch the yard sign situation evolve.

As I’ve gone through that area since the summer, I’ve seen more and more Romney signs appear...and as of last week I haven’t seen a single Obama sign.
