Quinnipiac: Obama 50, Romney 47; Baldwin 48, Thompson 46

President Obama's lead over Mitt Romney in Wisconsin has narrowed to 50 percent to 47 percent, according to a Quinnipiac University/New York Times/CBS News poll released today.

That compares to a 51-45 margin for Obama in the previous survey, released in mid-September.

The three-point margin makes the race too close to call, according to Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

Helping Romney is a slight edge with independent voters, with the new poll showing 48 percent for Romney and 46 percent for Obama. Also helping is his debate showing last week; Romney won last week’s debate, likely voters say, 65 percent to 17 percent. 


The poll also shows Wisconsin’s U.S. Senate race is too close to call with 48 percent for Democrat Tammy Baldwin and 46 percent for former Gov. Tommy Thompson.

Quinnipiac University live interviewed 1,327 likely voters Oct. 4-9 via land lines and cell phones. The survey has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.7 percentage points.
