Gov. Walker takes lead from Evers in latest Marquette Poll

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Milwaukee (WQOW) – With less than one month until election day, Gov. Scott Walker has inched ahead of challenger Tony Evers in the latest Marquette Law School Poll.

In the poll, Walker has 47 percent of support, just one point ahead of Evers’ 46 percent. In the September poll, Evers had a 5-point lead over Walker. Those numbers are all among likely voters.

It’s better news for the Democrats in the race for U.S. Senate, however. Incumbent Senator Tammy Baldwin has a 10-point lead over Republican challenger Leah Vukmir (53%-43%). Baldwin had an 11 point lead in the September poll.

Brad Schimel continues to be the favorite in the race for attorney general. Schimel has 47 percent of support while Democratic challenger Josh Kaul has 43 percent.

The poll was conducted Oct. 3-7, 2018. The sample includes 1,000 registered voters in Wisconsin interviewed by cell phone or landline with a margin of error of +/- 3.6 percentage points. For likely voters, the sample size is 799 and the margin of error is +/- 3.9 percentage points.

Governor Walker’s approval rating has remained fairly consistent since June, according to the poll. His job approval currently stands at 48 percent, with 47 percent disapproving.
