Tommy Thompson (R) by 4 points in the state's hard-fought Senate race, according to the poll. She's up 47 percent to 43 percent. Other recent polls have shown the race within the margin of error.

There has been little recent public polling of the state, though a poll from the conservative Rasmussen Reports released earlier this week had the race tied. Two nonpartisan, mid-October polls had Obama leading by 2 and 6 points.

The poll of 1,243 likely voters was conducted from Oct. 25-28 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.8 percentage points.
