Sununu: Thompson 'sounds like Barack Obama'

(CNN) – John Sununu, an outspoken surrogate to Republican nominee Mitt Romney's presidential campaign, criticized fellow conservative Tommy Thompson for blaming bad poll numbers on Mitt Romney earlier Thursday, likening the senate candidate to President Barack Obama himself.

Thompson cited Romney's campaign as being partly to blame for his slipping poll numbers. His comments come after a Marquette University Law School poll released Wednesday showed Thompson trailing Democratic opponent Tammy Baldwin by nine points among likely voters in the Senate race. The same poll showed Thompson leading Baldwin by nine points one month earlier.

New Wisconsin poll shows Obama with significant lead

(CNN) - A new poll of Wisconsin likely voters released Wednesday afternoon shows President Barack Obama with a double digit lead over Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney there. It stands in contrast to other national and state polls released Tuesday and Wednesday which have shown a close race, some giving Obama a slight advantage over Romney.

The Marquette Law School Poll put Obama 14 percentage points ahead of Romney among likely voters in the Badger State. It also shows a significant change in the Wisconsin race for a U.S. Senate seat.
