Quinnipiac/NYT/CBS WI Poll: Baldwin Up By Two, Obama Only Up By Three

The latest of Wisconsin is out and it shows that Tammy Baldwin is still clinging to a slight, 48-46 lead in the Senate race.

Meanwhile, the post-debate poll, is showing that Obama's lead is down to three (50-47) and his job approval numbers are upside down 47-49.  Last month, the same poll had Obama up 51-45 and job approval numbers at 51-46. 

There is still a significant gender gap, but not as pronounced as previous polls:  Baldwin has a nine point lead (51-42) and Obama is leading by ten points among women (53-43).

Obama's biggest problems are with the independents, where he is losing 48-46, (while Baldwin is tied 46-46.)  Obama's job approval numbers are upside down with independents by a 45-55 margin and his favorability is also upside down by a 47-46 margin.

This all has happened as a direct result of the debate:  51% of Wisconsin independents had a more favorable view Mitt Romney after the debate and 25% of independents said they were more likely to vote for Romney. Meanwhile, 29% of independents think less of Obama after the debate and 22% of the independents said they were less likely to vote for Obama after watching the debate.

Ouch.
