The failed union assault on Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is still reverberating throughout the Badger State. The state's swing voters have swung away hard from the public sector union goons and towards fiscal conservatism, resulting in a three point lead for Mitt Romney, with Rasmussen Reports finding Romney beating Obama 47-44 in their latest poll.
The poll was conducted on June 12, a week after the recall election, with 500 Likely Voters and a margin of error of 4.5%.
Just like Rasmussen found in Colorado, people who are voting for the lesser of two evils, who tend to be swing voters, vastly prefer Romney over Obama:
The president is ahead 54% to 45% among voters who are excited about the 2012 matchup. Romney leads 48% to 33% among those who are just choosing the lesser of two evils.
Among voters not affiliated with either major political party in the Badger State, Romney draws 43% support to Obama’s 38%.
A Republican presidential candidate hasn't won Wisconsin since 1984, but then again, it's been much longer than that since the economy was this bad during an election year.
If Romney is able to breach the Wisconsin/Pennsylvania/Michigan firewall, then Colorado might not even matter. Electorally, it would be all over for Obama at that point.
