NBC/WSJ polls: Obama ahead in Iowa, Wisconsin
10/18/12 6:48 PM EDT

Fresh from the battleground transom between Mitt Romney and President Obama, via First Read:


    According to the polls – which were conducted from Monday through Wednesday, encompassing Tuesday’s presidential debate in New York and after – Obama receives the support of 51 percent of likely voters in Iowa to Romney’s 43 percent.

    That eight-point margin is unchanged from the NBC/WSJ/Marist poll released last month (before the debate season began), when the president led his Republican opponent 50 percent to 42 percent.

    And in Wisconsin, Obama is ahead by six points among likely voters, 51 percent to 45 percent, which also is virtually unchanged from last month.

The surveys show similar trends as have come up in national polls - Romney's favorables have improved a bit, as has the right-track number. But these polls shows the gender gap unchanged. And the debates, unlike elsewhere, don't really register as factors.

I smell a push poll.
