Obama and Romney in a Great Lakes dead heat
- Michigan last went Republican in 1988.
- Wisconsin last went Republican in 1984.
- Minnesota last went Republican in 1972.
The Great Lakes States. The most hardcore center, the heartland of the Democrat Party. But the economy is so fucking bad and Comrade Obama such a poor leader that even in this center of Democrat liberal power the GOP is running neck and neck.
47% - Comrade Obama
44% - Governor Romney
As the presidential race tightens across the country, a new Star Tribune Minnesota Poll has found that it is narrowing here as well, with President Obama holding a 3-point lead and Republican Mitt Romney making gains in the state.
The poll shows Obama with support from 47 percent of likely voters and Romney earning backing from 44 percent -- a lead within the poll's margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
Last month, Obama had an 8-percentage point advantage in the Minnesota Poll. Romney has apparently cut into the Democrat's advantage among women since then and picked up support from Minnesotans who were previously undecided or said they would vote for a third-party candidate. (Star Tribune)
49% - Comrade Obama
49% - Governor Romney
By now, it has been widely acknowledged that Ohio is arguably the most important swing state in the presidential race this election year-even with key swing states Michigan and New Hampshire still in play-but a new poll from Rasmussen Reports says that Wisconsin and its 10 electoral votes might actually be the "new Ohio."
A new Rasmussen reports poll released Thursday that showed the Badger State all tied at 49 apiece for both candidates.
A week ago, the president held a slight 50% to 48% lead. Earlier in the month, he was ahead 51% to 49%. In surveys in Wisconsin since October of last year, the president has earned 44% to 52% of the vote, while Romney’s support has ranged from 41% to 49%.
Ninety-six percent (96%) of Badger State voters say they are sure to vote in this election. Romney leads 51% to 47% among these voters.
Among the 90% who say they’ve already made up their minds whom they will vote for, it’s Romney 51%, Obama 48%.
Romney has a six-point lead over Obama – 50% to 44% - among all voters in the state when they are asked which candidate they trust more to handle the economy. When it comes to national security, the candidates are almost tied: 48% trust Obama more, while 47% have more faith in Romney. (Rasmussen Reports)
46.9% - Comrade Obama
46.5% - Governor Romney
1,122 respondents fully participated in the survey. The margin of error for this total polling sample is 2.93% with a confidence level of 95%. (My Fox Detroit)
