Rasmussen Poll: Obama, Romney Tied in Wisconsin 49-49

Friday, 26 Oct 2012 12:54 PM

By Stephen Feller

President Barack Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney are now tied in the increasingly important battleground state of Wisconsin, according to a new poll.

Rasmussen Reports' survey of likely voters shows each candidate receiving 49 percent of the vote with 10 days left before election day.

During the last two months, Obama has maintained a steady two-point lead in Wisconsin, with the gap now being eliminated in Thursday’s poll. Rasmussen continues to call the state a toss-up.

Ninety percent of those who participated in the survey said they had already made up their mind and, of those, Romney holds a three-point lead over Obama, 51-to-48. Additionally, 96 percent said they “are sure to vote in this election,” with Romney holding a four-point lead over the incumbent president, 51-to-47.

Romney also is six points ahead when voters are asked who they trust more to handle the economy, though Obama has a one-point lead on who they prefer for foreign affairs. Rasmussen said this shows no change from the results of its poll last week.
