The independent firm surveyed 800 likely votes in the Badger State last weekend.

Fifty-three percent said Obama was better able to handle the economy.

McCain was the best choice for handling the Iraq war, 47 to 45 percent.

Only 14 percent of those polled gave President Bush a favorable job rating.
