Romney Surges in Wisconsin, Tied with Obama
The last Marquette University poll of Wisconsin was conducted the last week of September, prior to the first presidential debate. It found Obama with a comfortable 11-point lead among likely voters, 53-42. Among the broader universe of registered voters, Obama enjoyed a 14-point lead over Romney, 54-40. He had leads on job approval, favorability, and better handling of most issues. What a difference a debate makes.
