CNN poll: Obama has narrow lead, Wisconsin now a toss up

A new CNN poll released today found the president with a lead over Mitt Romney among Wisconsin adults and registered voters.

CNN noted the lead is within the margin of error and moved Wisconsin into its toss up category.

The survey found 50 percent of Wisconsin adults favored Obama, compared to 44 percent who supported Romney. Among registered voters, 49 percent backed the president, while 45 percent supported Romney.

Among all adults, 54 percent said Romney's pick of Paul Ryan to run for vice president with him was an excellent or pretty good choice, while 41 percent said it was only fair or poor. Fifty-six percent said Ryan was qualified to be president if it became necessary, while 35 percent said he was not.

The survey of 1,005 adults was conducted by ORC International using live phone interviews Monday and Tuesday. The margin of error for the total sample was plus or minus 3 percentage points. The pool also included 920 interviews with registered voters and had a similar margin of error. The sample included 750 respondents with landlines and 255 with cell phones.
