Obama Pulling Away in Wisconsin

A new Quinnipiac University poll, shows Barack Obama with a massive 54% - 37% lead over John McCain in the Badger State. Interestingly enough, the time frame for the poll, taken last Wednesday through Sunday, included the two days that McCain and Palin spent campaigning in the state, AND after resources were pulled from Michigan and placed IN Wisconsin. In the university's prior poll from 10-3 through 10-7, Obama held a 51% to 43% edge. In other words, the more you see of them, the less you like.

The poll questioned 1,201 likely voters in Wisconsin and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.8 percentage points.

Among female voters, it found Obama leading 59% to 33%. His lead among men was 49% to 41%.

Respondents said Obama did a better job in the second debate than McCain, 58% to 21%.

As in other polls, respondents gave the edge on foreign policy to McCain and the economy to Obama, though 55% said the economy was the biggest issue in the election.

"Even white men favor Barack Obama in Wisconsin where his debate performance and the crumbling economy sparked a doubling of his lead over John McCain," Clay Richards, assistant director of the Quinnipiac polling center, said in a statement. "It is one of the few battleground states where Obama has a substantial lead among blue-collar voters and Catholics as well as white men."

Similar results are coming out in Michigan, Minnesota, and Colorado. John McCain is down to holding his base. Do you know what "the base" translates to in Arabic?

Al Quaida.
