Today’s complete itinerary: President Obama official schedule and guidance, November 5, 2012.
The Madison campaign stop closely follows an earlier appearance in the state in Milwaukee on Friday, November 3, with singer-songwriter Katy Perry, and is President Obama’s final trip to the state in the 2012 election. Wisconsin is among a handful of key battleground states, alongside Iowa and Ohio which he will visit later today. These same states have been visited extensively by the Republican opponents; both the VP candidate, the Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan and the Presidential candidate Gov. Mitt Romney campaign extensively in these same states. As for polling data in Wisconsin, a recent Marquette Law School poll shows President Obama with a 7 percent lead among voters over Gov. Romney; 51 percent versus 43 percent.
