Quinnipiac: Obama Leads By 13 In Wisconsin

By  | 

Obama – 52%
McCain – 39%

The details…

Wisconsin women likely voters back Obama 53 – 37 percent while men back the Democrat 51 – 40 percent.

White voters back Obama 49 – 42 percent.

He leads 61 – 35 percent among voters 18 to 34 years old, 52 – 39 percent among voters 35 to 54 years old and 47 – 41 percent among voters over 55.

Obama’s favorability is 54 – 27 percent, with 48 – 30 percent for McCain.

As I’ve done in the other three posts about Quinnipiac’s polls, I’m going to compare Bush’s favorable/unfavorable ratings with what Wisconsin voters think about the war.

Bush’s favorable/unfavorable
Favorable – 27%
Unfavorable – 67%

Support for staying in Iraq
Keep Troops There – 51%
Withdraw – 41%

A smaller gap between staying and going in Iraq, but an extremely low approval for Bush looks to be pushing Obama’s lead even higher.

Is Wisconsin solidly blue this cycle? Looks as if.

More as it develops…

    I don’t think McCain has a chance in the upper Midwest. Even though I like Pawlenty that poll shows what I thought, which is that he won’t get McCain any more states and maybe even not Minnesota.
