Default More great early voting results in swing states

Along with the strong advantage Obama enjoys among those who already voted in Ohio, he also leads by wide margins in Iowa and Wisconsin.

The NBC/Marist/Wall Street Journal polls released today show that the president is up by 8 points in Iowa and 6 points in Wisconsin among likely voters.

Among those who already voted, 67% of Iowans and 64% of Wisconsinites voted for Obama.

IMO, the most interesting finding was the re-emergence of the gender gap. I would expect that trend to continue in the aftermath of Tuesday's debate.

Polls: Obama holds his lead in Iowa, Wisconsin - First Read

Iowa and Wisconsin are blue states, not swing states. If Romney is competitive at all in either of these (which I don't believe), it means Obama is losing ground.

IDK why anyone would vote Obama, quite frankly, unless it's someone who is dependent on social programs, who believes the media's lies that it's only Republicans who would end these programs. It's borrowed dollars. I don't care who the President is, the U.S. is not Europe. Even with very different demographics, these things don't work in its countries, either. Anyone should be smart enough to see how this works.

I voted for Romney because I'm ready to give something else a chance. I don't think it will make much difference to our economy, but I cannot vote for someone who is so derelict in his duties all across the board it's in.cred.ib.le. I do think Obama will win, but only because people any more are so amazingly stupid and willing to take whatever crumbs the Democratic Party tosses their way. At least our Democratic senator in Ohio does work hard and keeps his word on many of his promises. He's probably the only Democrat I will ever vote for again after all this mess.

Everything just needs to stay quiet until election day. Well, I guess if he has another 'We got bin Laden' surprise under his sleeve, that would be great, too.

Turtles, you be giving me life up in NH!!!!!!

Oh wow bbg. Are you part of the 53%?

I'm really not understanding how people can miss the HUGE opposition the POTUS has gotten from the elephants and some of the donkeys--just because (well it's not "just because" if you know what it really is). He didn't keep promises, didn't do as much as he promised...but now he didn't work hard? COME ON SON!

THERE ARE LOTS OF PEOPLE WHO ARE VOTING FOR BARACK OBAMA and it's not because they are dependent on social programs--because some are not. THERE ARE ALSO A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO WILL VOTE FOR ROMNEY AND THEY ARE DEPENDENT ON SOCIAL PROGRAMS.

Social programs are not the enemy. Please move to a country without social programs and be dirt poor and see how good USA has it. A government should take care of her citizens especially the weak and vulnerable. PERIOD.

I mean. COME ON!!!!!!!!

I see you stuck on the FOX Channel...move around a little bit.

I know the right-wing no longer believes in fact-checking (or facts, for that matter), but you are demonstrably wrong.

The election history of both states shows that both parties have an excellent shot at winning in any given year. This is especially true of Iowa, which went for Bush in 2004, but even in Wisconsin, Bush only lost by 1% in 2004, and the 2000 election was a 48-48 tie. Given the fact that the GOP has a hometown boy on the ticket, WI was definitely considered to be very much in play this year.

I am fortunate enough to have spent my entire life in the 53%, but I'm also fully aware that not everybody is so privileged.

The GOP is ABSOLUTELY committed to ending or severely curtailing social programs. They have said so publicly, and it's on tape! Why is the media at fault for merely quoting Republicans on this fact?

This is lifted directly from the Newt Gingrich talking points on delegitimizing our duly elected president. The speaker and the statement are both beneath contempt.

Ad hominem attacks are a sure sign that you are have no substantive arguments to offer. We can respectfully disagree without resorting to such pathetic tactics (at least I can, but then I can back up my position).

For the record, I don't need, want or receive any "crumbs" from the Democratic party. And I'm not "amazingly stupid" - on the contrary, I'm quite highly educated (PhD in political science, MA in economics, completing a second PhD at FIU beginning next year). But you don't need a piece of paper to know who gives a s**t about the 100%.

I have tremendous respect for the American people and our democratic process, and I don't feel the need to denigrate the intelligence of those on the other side.

I love Sherrod. Wish I could vote for him too, although listening to him makes me reach for a Ricola
