Poll has Obama up 6, tight Senate race


A new poll out this morning has Barack Obama up on Mitt Romney by 6 percentage points among likely Wisconsin voters.

The survey from Quinnipiac University, the New York Times and CBS News is the first batch of Wisconsin numbers in an ongoing polling project of swing states they have decided to survey through the fall election.

The poll had Obama up 51 percent to 45 percent and found a significant gender gap in Wisconsin. Obama led among women 59-36, while Romney led among men 53-43.

The poll also found Obama edging Romney among independents 48-47.

The survey also found a tight U.S. Senate race.

Dem U.S. Rep. Tammy Baldwin and former Gov. Tommy Thompson were tied at 47, while Baldwin topped Eric Hovde 47-43 and Mark Neumann 48-45.

The group surveyed 1,428 likely Wisconsin voters from July 31-Aug. 6 using live interviews of land lines and cell phones. The margin of error was plus or minus 2.6 percentage points.
