Wisconsin may be the new Ohio, according to Scott Rasmussen:

In Election 2000, Florida was the decisive state in the Electoral College. In 2004, Ohio was the ultimate battleground that put George W. Bush over the top. This year, it might come down to Wisconsin….

If Ohio goes for the president, Romney has a few perilous paths to victory available to him. All require him to carry Wisconsin and its 10 Electoral College votes.

The simplest path without Ohio would be for Romney to win Wisconsin, Colorado and one other swing state. It’s plausible, but an uphill struggle.

A Rasmussen poll released today shows a dead heat at 49% each.  Three of the last four polls show it within 2 points.

I’m hoping the Republican enthusiasm from the recall victory in Wisconsin together with a native son on the Republican ticket can pull it out.  We need some electoral  insurance.
