Poll: Romney edges Obama in Colo., narrows gap in Wis.
CBS ^ | 11 Oct 2012 | Sarah Dutton,

Posted on 10/11/2012 10:19:35 AM PDT by mandaladon

On the heels of last week's presidential debate, Mitt Romney has emerged with a one-point edge over President Obama in Colorado and has cut the president's lead in half in Wisconsin, according to a new Quinnipiac University/CBS News/New York Times poll.

In Wisconsin, where Mr. Obama led Romney by six percent last month, the president now holds just a three-point advantage, with 50 percent to Romney's 47 percent support. Last month, the president led Romney 51 to 45 percent.

In Colorado, the two remain locked in a dead heat, with Romney leading Mr. Obama 48 percent to 47 percent, within the poll's margin of error. Last month, also within that margin, Mr. Obama had the one-point edge, with 48 percent to Romney's 47 percent.

In Virginia, the presidential race remains essentially unchanged, with Mr. Obama holding on to a small lead over Romney, with 51 percent support to Romney's 46. In September, the president led Romney 50 percent to 46 percent there.

All three polls, conducted from October 4-9, began surveying voters after the first presidential debate. By about four to one, voters in all three of these battleground states say Romney won last week's presidential debate, and sizable numbers say the debate made them think better of him. But majorities say the debate did not affect their vote. The debate had a positive impact on voters' impressions of Romney. More than four in ten voters in these states who watched the first presidential debate (and 51 percent in Colorado) say it made them feel better about Romney. Fewer than one in 10 said that about Mr. Obama; more say it made them think worse of him.

Romney made gains among voters who are paying a lot of attention to the presidential campaign. Among these voters, Romney leads in Colorado by 53 percent to 44 percent, and in Wisconsin he leads by a smaller margin (51 percent to 47 percent). When measuring voters who have been paying close attention, the race becomes even in Virginia,49 percent to 49 percent. ..................This I think is significant.

I need a breakdown of the VA poll. The last poll they did had a D+9 in VA; which is BS. Party breakdown would most likely be R+1, or even.

Heading into the final weeks of the campaign, Romney has established his leadership credentials with many voters in these states. While majorities think both presidential candidates have strong qualities of leadership, more think that of Romney than of Mr. Obama...................This will continue to improve after next debate.

Quinnipiac University/CBS I’ve said it for years, those clowns from no [I]Q U are one of the worst pollsters in the nation.

It is no wonder that seeBS has teamed up with them.

Brian Swift ‏@BrianSwift New Florida Poll: Romney 51, Obama 44 this is from tampabay.com..remember when SurveyUSA people said on ORelly that they would be pulling people out of Florida, Virginia, and NC because Romney had already won and some were saying its too early to already say Romney has won, well it might turn out they were right all along..looks like Romney has Florida in the bag, if this poll is true

“In Wisconsin, where Mr. Obama led Romney by six percent last month, the president now holds just a three-point advantage, with 50 percent to Romney’s 47 percent support. Last month, the president led Romney 51 to 45 percent.”

We’re gettin’ there! Trust me - our deep-woods, leave-me-the-hell-alone Northern Wisconsinites WILL come into town to vote this time around. They showed up in DROVES to re-elect our Governor, who garnered another few points the SECOND time the LibTards forced us to re-elect him...at Taxpayer Expense, don’t ‘cha know!

I’m pretty sure Wisconsin is going to go Red. Add Tommy Thompson (v. Tammy Baldwin, Professional Communist) to the mix, and a few other locals of note and we’re in VERY good shape to pull this out!
