Polls show Obama edge in Iowa, New Hampshire and Wisconsin

(CNN) – With less than a week before Election Day, polls released Thursday indicated a narrow edge for President Barack Obama in Iowa, New Hampshire and Wisconsin, three states that are being fiercely contested in the final stretch of the campaign.

In Iowa, Obama was at 50% among likely voters, and Romney at 44%, according to the NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll. That's slightly tighter than earlier in October, though the result Thursday was just outside the poll's sampling error of plus or minus 2.9 percentage points. A poll released Wednesday indicated a much tighter race in the Hawkeye State – the University of Iowa survey had Obama at 42.7% and Romney at 41%.

Back on the stump, Ryan focuses on 'different direction'

Eau Claire, Wisconsin (CNN) - In the wake of Superstorm Sandy devastating the northeast Paul Ryan toned down his criticism of President Barack Obama when Mitt Romney's running mate resumed campaigning on Wednesday.

When the Wisconsin lawmaker and vice presidential nominee kicked off the first of three rallies in his home state he focused less on their Democratic opponent – who will spend the day surveying Sandy-ravaged areas of New Jersey with Republican Gov. Chris Christie – and more on what the Republican ticket would do if they were elected in six days.

Clinton: Debate analysis is a 'distraction'

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.
