At least one new poll says the presidential race in Wisconsin is tightening a bit.

The Atlanta firm of Strategic Vision gives Democrat Barack Obama a nine-point lead over Republican John McCain, 50-41 percent.

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.
