I don't like these numbers... Let's just criticize the sample size and call it an outlier, okay? ;-)

These numbers are fine, about what I expect for the final margin there, maybe Obama wins by 8-9, but 7 points is plenty for this state, which was a dead heat last time and in 2000.

Obama could win by 1 vote and I'd be happy.

Still surprised at Rasmussen's 1-day polls...Mccain has abandoned the state so Obama should feel safe. But I'd like to see a larger margin in some upcoming polls.

Once again I think this is a typically too-close estimate from Rasmussen that subsequent polls from other pollsters will show to be so.

wisconsin is always close come election day id say obama wins by about 5-10 points here could be less though.

Getting closer, but 7% is still a huge win in Wisconsin. State of the state...

Obama WILL win WI in double digits. This poll is an outlier. In the WI primary, all polls showed Obama with maybe a 5-8 point lead, and on election day he won by 17 points!
Here's link to RCP before the election:
WI will not be nearly as close as Rasmussen would have you believe, you can just feel it here!
