Rasmussen: Romney now leads Obama by 3 in Wisconsin

The progressive nightmare that is Wisconsin has gotten a heavy dose of sunlight over the last 2 years and it looks like it’s spreading even more across the state. After that big win in Wisconsin, people cited exit polls that showed Obama leading Romney. But those exit polls are tough to trust given the many inaccuracies in predicting the winners. But now we don’t have to talk about exit polls. Rasmussen has confirmed that Romney has a 3 point lead over Obama in the wake of a historic win for Republicans.

Let’s hope the sunlight keeps spreading:

RASMUSSEN – Mitt Romney now leads President Obama for the first time in Wisconsin where the president’s support has fallen to its lowest level to date.

The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters shows Romney with 47% of the vote to Obama’s 44%. Five percent (5%) prefer some other candidate, and four percent (4%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Prior to this survey, Obama’s support in the state has ranged from 45% to 52%, while Romney has earned 41% to 45%. Last month, the numbers were Obama 49%, Romney 45%. The president led his likely Republican challenger by 11 points in March – 52% to 41%.

    We’re poised for a good conservative run, if the Republicans don’t “snatch defeat from the jaws of victory” as they’re so good at doing.

    Romney is positioned to provide a Reaganesque recovery from the Carter-Malaise-Like ashes of this regime. We could be in for a long run if we just give conservatism a chance.

    • The Tea Party Movement of America will not allow anyone or anything fail to beat obama in November, even if as The Great One; Mark Levin saids, we would vote for a can of orange juice if we knew it would beat obama.
      The election isn’t about republicans, it’s about getting democrats, obama, and his czars, out of our government and keeping them out.
      They are a clear and present danger to Freedom and Liberty.

      Tea Party Patriot
      The orange juice can could win!

    By the way, 4% are “undecided”. You can add at least 3 of those points to the Romney column and his actual lead is more like 50% to 44%. Woo hoo, cheese heads.

    • conwis

      You’re welcome. Now let us pray Mitt doesn’t do something to blow it.

    • FutureOnePercent

      But you also have to add in the 3% of voter fraud for Obama, so it’s a wash.

      • drphibes

        Ha. Good catch.

  • Wisconsin is now in the swing-state column for the first time sense Reagan? HELL YEAH!

    Wisconsin was really close in 2000 and 2004. Obama advertised heavily in Wisconsin in 2008 compared to McCain’s advertising. Plus, WI is close to the Chicago area, and I’m sure that was a factor. Wisconsin should be in play, but keep an eye on Iowa as well. If Romney wins Iowa and Wisconsin, along with North Carolina, Florida, and Ohio, then it’s all over.

      Hey Louie

      How ya’ doin?

      Look at my post with the map

      I think you will like it

      • Big_Louie

        Yeah I frequent that site. It’s a good site. It’s why I know that adding IN, NC, FL, OH, IA, and WI to the red states from 2008 produces 269 electoral votes, which is good enough to win as Republicans will have the tiebreaker in the House.

        I don’t think it’ll be that close in 2012 though.

        My unofficial prediction for the electoral college is 355-183 for Romney.
        Romney wins all the McCain 2008 states plus: Indiana, North Carolina, Florida, Ohio, Colorado, New Hampshire, Iowa, Wisconsin, Nevada, Minnesota, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Oregon, and one congressional district in Maine.

        Obama holds onto Hawaii, Washington, California, New Mexico, Illinois, DC, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Vermont, and 3 of the 4 electoral votes from Maine.

        Romney wins the popular vote national 54-45%

          Sabato is pretty accurate – I wish I had your enthusiasm –

          I pray you are right

          Just curious –

          Where are you from New York or New Jersey?

    • Nukeman60

      I agree with Iowa, Wisconsin, Florida, and N. Carolina leaning Republican right now, but Ohio is a tough one to grab. If Romney picks Portman for VP, that may tip the scales there for him and in doing so, tips the election as well.

    When a significant event happens I repost this:

    This is a repost and I was surprised to discover that many people here
    knew nothing about this

    This is an interactive map projecting the election based on your input

    Simply click on the State to change the color and towards the bottom you can see the State’s voting history

    I review it every day based on the day’s events

    Based on my analysis – I believe Obummer will be gone

    He seems to be digging himself in deeper every day –

    Fine with me

    I pray everyday this man goes away in November

    • Nukeman60

      Love the map, Joe. Every time I get a new state poll, I check the map to compare. Makes things real interesting. Thanks.

  • Philo Beddoe

    Yah hey dare Wisconsin!

  • Sober_Thinking

    I don’t trust ANY polls – especially this early in the election. But what is cool is how the Tea Party shows up and takes out the trash, no matter what the polls say. That gives me hope that this monster in the White House may soon be kicked out the door.

    Think Marco Rubio is on DoorMitt’s short list as Veep. Someone ought to tell Mitt his Golden boy is another Progressive in sheeps clothing…Seems he pushed through Obama Radical Ambassador yesterday…Remember These Progressive GOPers.

    From Redstate:
    It’s another day in the Senate, and another radical Obama nominee is confirmed.

    Last August, flustered by Jim DeMint’s Senate hold, Obama used a recess appointment to name Maria del Carmen Aponte ambassador to El Salvador. She was originally selected as ambassador to the Domincan Republic during the Clinton administration, but she withdrew her name after refusing to take a polygraph test concerning her relationship with Cuban spy, Roberto Tamayo. Nonetheless, radical rejects of the Clinton administration are the very people whom Obama loves to recycle.

    Aponte’s recess appointment expired at the end of the year, but almost every Republican (except for Brown and Collins) united to oppose cloture on her nomination. Aside for the national security concerns, Republicans were concerned that Aponte would promote her radical social agenda in a country where we are trying to develop a close relationship. A while back, Aponte published an opinion piece that called into question the religious and pro-family culture of Salvadorans.

    Yesterday, the media reported that Harry Reid would try to bring up cloture on the Aponte nomination once again. I didn’t think much of it at the time. After all, why would Republicans drop their objections? Well, evidently 9 Republicans felt it was time to give up. Cloture was invoked earlier today, followed by confirmation via voice vote.

    What changed? Marco Rubio lent his support to Aponte in the last minute. I guess it’s not just immigration.

    Here are the Republican yay votes:

      I, for one, am not the least bit surprised by the names on this list(although I don’t know much about Ayotte). Theses are some of the biggest RINOs out there. Good on ya Indiana for ditching Lugar. Hopefully Mitt takes Rubio off the short list.

  • If there is hope of a revival in somewhat Liberal* Wisconsin, then there is hope everywhere!

    *Like most any state, the cities are dens of Liberal iniquity, while the countryside more Conservative… Or at least leaning traditional.

  • The University students will return and skew the polls.

    The people of Wisconsin didn’t just get news soundbites and white washed ones at that, of what the progressives were doing to their capitol and state in general.
    They got a close up look at what progressive thugs are capable of, those thugs have no intention of looking out for anyone but their own sorry backsides.
    Looks like Wisconsin gets that…now on to the other battle ground states so the thug in cheif and his cronies can get packing……….
