Polling

  1. Marquette Law School Poll shows Democrats ahead in Wisconsin

    The final pre-election results from the Marquette Law School Poll show President Obama and Rep. Tammy Baldwin, Senate candidate, ahead of their opponents with Election Day just four days away.

    After months of riding the Wisconsin polling roller coaster, the latest results show Obama with a significant lead over Romney, 51 percent to 43 percent. Professor Charles Franklin, director of the poll, attributes the jump in results to the candidates’ performances in the debates.

    After a tie in poll results two weeks ago, Baldwin has also moved ahead of her Republican opponent, former Gov. Tommy Thompson, 47 percent to 43 percent.

  2. One of CNN’s latest election coverage projects breaks the voting numbers down and makes things slightly easier to visualize as the presidential candidates enter the final stretch of the election neck and neck.

    The infographic page displays a national range across the top of the page with results of nine battleground states below.

    Currently, the chart shows Romney leading nationally by one percent. Of the nine swing states CNN has coverage of, Romney has the advantage in Florida, however Obama has the lead in the other eight.

    Take a look at the charts for yourself and check back for updates.

  3. The Fix has moved Ohio to “Lean Obama” after a new Washington Post Poll out Tuesday showed him up 52 percent to 44 percent over Mitt Romney.
Obama also has a lead in Florida in the new poll, though at 51-47 it is not statistically significant.
