Latest UW Badger Poll released today


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A new poll shows Barack Obama with a 16-point lead over John McCain in Wisconsin.

The University of Wisconsin Survey Center's Badger Poll of 538 adults was conducted between Oct. 21 and Tuesday. It has a margin of error of plus or minus just over 4 percentage points.

The race tightens when the field is narrowed to 359 likely voters. Then Obama's 10-point lead is within the margin of error of just over 5 percentage points.

The poll released Friday is the ninth this month to show Obama with a double-digit lead in Wisconsin.

Neither candidate has campaigned in the state since Oct. 10, and Obama's financial advantage has allowed him to run five television ads for every one of McCain's.
