Quinnipiac/New York Times/CBS poll has Obama up 51-45, Senate race even

President Obama has regained his lead over Mitt Romney in Wisconsin, according to the new Quinnipiac University/CBS News/New York Times survey.

It also had the U.S. Senate race dead even.

The poll found Obama led his Republican opponent 51 percent to 45 percent among likely voters, despite the presence of GOP vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan on the ticket. The president held a two-point lead in an Aug. 23 Quinnipiac University/CBS News/New York Times survey after Ryan joined the ticket, and nine points in an Aug. 8 survey prior to the pick. Obama won Wisconsin by 14 points in 2008.

Obama's job approval was 51 percent, while iindependent voters backed Romney 50–44. Only 7 percent of Obama voters and 6 percent of Romney voters say they might change their mind.  


In the Senate race, Dem Tammy Baldwin and Republican Tommy Thompson registered 47 percent in the poll, compared to a 50–44 Thompson lead in the group's last survey following the Aug. 14 GOP primary. Independent voters backed Thompson 50–42.

The poll was done Sept. 11-17, with 1,485 likely voters interviewed live via land line and cell phones. The margin of error was plus or minus 2.5 percentage points.
