Daily Fix Poll: President Obama's four-state swing
By Felicia Sonmez
President Barack Obama is making stops in four states this week that, as luck would have it -- not -- are hosting some of this cycle's most competitive races.
Obama's first stop is in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where he's slated to talk with local families on Tuesday. Then he moves on to Madison, Wisc., where he headlines a rally for the Democratic National Committee. On Wednesday, Obama will speak with more local families in Des Moines, Iowa, and Richmond, Va., before returning to Washington.
Obama won all four states in 2008 but Democrats are facing competitive races in each. The gubernatorial race in New Mexico is in a dead heat, while Iowa Gov. Chet Culver (D) is in need of a major boost; Wisconsin has heated gubernatorial and Senate races as well, and several Democratic House candidates in Virginia -- the 2nd and 5th in particular -- are struggling to stay above water.
In which of the four states is Obama's visit likely to give the Democratic candidate(s) the biggest boost? Vote -- and tell us why -- below.
