In Wisconsin, Obama has edge over Clinton

clipped from

While Clinton, the Democratic senator from New York, is behind rival U.S. Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., in polls leading up to Tuesday's Wisconsin primary, she could pull off an upset, some pundits say.

Obama leads Clinton in pre-primary polls by four or five percentage points, well within the margin of error. And despite her claims that she's setting up a firewall in Ohio and Texas to stop what is becoming an Obama juggernaut, Clinton will be hitting the stump in the Badger State to make sure she at least captures a sizable chunk of the state's 92 delegates and super-delegates.

Wisconsin is a diverse state, known for its progressive politics. With an elaborate public school and college network, the state's electorate is highly educated and has large college-age populations in the capital of Madison as well as other cities throughout the state. There's also a significant working-class demographic in urban centers such as Milwaukee, which once elected a socialist mayor.
