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%.
