Marquette Law poll: Obama, Thompson lead in Wisconsin

The latest Marquette University Law School poll has President Obama narrowly up on Mitt Romney, while Tommy Thompson leads Tammy Baldwin in the U.S. Senate race.

The survey found 49 percent of respondents backed the Obama-Joe Biden ticket compared to 46 percent that supported the Mitt Romney-Paul Ryan team.

In the Marquette poll conducted two weeks earlier and before Ryan was picked for the GOP VP slot, Obama led 50-45.

In the U.S. Senate race, Thompson led Baldwin 50-41 compared to 48-43 two weeks earlier.

The poll of 576 likely voters on the November elections was conducted Aug. 16-19 after Thompson's GOP primary win and Ryan's selection for the Republican ticket. It included both landline and cell phone users and had a margin of error of plus or minus 4.2 percentage points.

Other results were based on a sample that included 706 registered voters and had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.8 percentage points.

Thirty-one percent of respondents said they rated Romney's selection of Ryan as a running mate as excellent, 27 percent said pretty good, 16 percent only fair and 19 percent poor.

Also, 29 percent of respondents said they were more likely to vote for Romney with Ryan on the ticket while 16 percent said it was less likely and 53 percent said it would not have much effect.
