Polls: Obama has advantage in Wisconsin, Iowa

(CNN) – New polls that were taken partially after the second presidential debate indicate President Barack Obama has an edge over Republican challenger Mitt Romney in the battleground states of Wisconsin and Iowa.

Fifty-one percent of likely voters in Wisconsin back the president, while 45% support Romney, according to one of the NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist polls released Thursday. The six point margin falls within the survey's sampling error, meaning the two candidates are statistically tied in the state.

Ryan going for the luck of the 'Pack'

Waukesha, Wisconsin (CNN) – Rep. Paul Ryan is hoping the winning streak of his beloved Packers will rub off on his party and end a 28-year losing streak for Republican presidential nominees in his home state.

"And in Wisconsin we have shown that if leaders step up and lead we as voters have their backs. We haven't dedicated our electoral votes since 1984 to the Republican nominee. It is time we change that," Mitt Romney's running mate said. "We are on a winning streak here in Wisconsin. Let's keep that winning streak going."
