Gov's race #9 on national list

Wisconsin's governor's race drops to #9 this week on the The Fix lineup in the Washington Post, by Chris Cillizza, down from #7. There are so many hot races that he expanded the top 10 to 15 this week. Rankings are on the basis of those most likely to switch parties.

9. Wisconsin: Incumbent Gov. Jim Doyle (D) appears to have reversed his earlier free fall with a television campaign that touts his accomplishments while linking Rep. Mark Green (R) to President George W. Bush. A recent Research 2000 poll showed Doyle with a 48 percent to 38 percent lead, although another poll -- conducted by Republican firm Strategic Vision -- showed Green with a 45 percent to 44 percent lead. As always, our advice is to average the two polls and see what you get. By our calculation that produces a mid-single digit edge for Doyle. (Previous ranking: 7)
