Coming off an overpowering debate performance Romney has pulled within 2 points of Obama in Wisconsin. Public Policy Polling, (PPP) using a sane +1 Democratic, sample finds Obama at 49% and Romney at 47%.
"There's not much doubt it was Romney's strong debate performance on Wednesday night that's given him this boost. Voters think he won the debate by a 61/25 margin, including a 60/19 margin with independents. 95% of Republicans think Romney won the debate,while only 50% of Democrats claim to think Obama was the winner. Romney's image has seen significant improvement over the last couple weeks with 49% of voters now expressing a positive opinion of him to 48% with a negative one. That's up a net 8 points from a 44/51 spread on our last poll."
Two weeks ago Romney trailed Obama 52% to 45% in a PPP poll. PPP surveyed 979 likely Wisconsin voters from October 4th to 6th. The margin of error for the overall survey is +/-3.1% which means the race is within the margin of error.
