Skip to comments.Marquette poll: Scott Walker in dead heat with Mary Burke for Wisconsin gubernatorial race
Posted on 07/23/2014 6:44:32 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
That's what Wisconsin is staring at in the race for governor, with Gov. Scott Walker and Democratic challenger Mary Burke neck-and-neck heading into the November election, according to the latest Marquette University Law School poll released Wednesday.
Among registered voters, Walker led Burke, 46% to 45%. Among likely voters, Burke led Walker, 47% to 46%.
"The bottom line is that nothing has statistically changed from May to July," said Charles Franklin, the poll director. "We're seeing a dead heat in the race, well within the margin of error."
"As the race really heats up with advertising and back and forth, I'd expect to see interesting developments over the next months," he added.
In the May sample, the race took shape as the Republican incumbent was first deadlocked with Burke, a member of the Madison School Board. The two candidates recorded 46% each, with 6% undecided. Back then, Walker led Burke among likely voters by 48% to 45%.

He’s not going to lose. I can guarantee it. Wisconsinites are FED UP with Dems at ALL levels.
We will be voting in DROVES, as we did in the BOGUS recall election. :)
What exactly is she going to change. Just spend more. She is not advocating; changing any of the laws he brought in.
Between now and Labor Day, both sides will go on a dirt digging expedition. If they find anything worth talking about, or sufficiently distracting, we will know by the first part of October. It’s how they operate. I guess I want Walker to win. He was such a RINO.
Walker wont lose so long as they dont register those 6 to 10 thousand child refugees.
If the polls are showing a dead heat then its a safe bet the Republican candidate is ahead.
What any of these polls fail to account for is turnout. The republicans will turn out at least 10% more voters than the democrats so factor that in.
Let me just say this. It is in the financial interest of the media and polling firms to have a horse race. I have watched the local Milwaukee paper steadily ratchet up the heat on this campaign. Making much out of nothing. They know that a lot of money gets poured into their coffers in advertising with a “hot race”.
The Milwaukee paper also owns TV and radio outlets and other papers. There’s not a lot of money to be fleeced from a political race with a clear leader and little interest.
Is she a dyke like the senator from W?
Marquette poll is total B.S.
I would call that "Well within the margin of fraud"
Hes not going to lose. I can guarantee it. Wisconsinites are FED UP with Dems at ALL levels.
We will be voting in DROVES, as we did in the BOGUS recall election. :)
American voters have demonstrated that they simply will not accept more than three consecutive 4 year terms of good government and that two consecutive 4 year terms of good government is really pushing it.
Scott Walker synonymous with outstanding government so it is hard to see how he gets another term.
Put nothing past the DIMocRATs. They will do anything to win. They are soul-less and moral-less ghouls of the first order.
The 15% Democrat vote fraud also needs to be factored.
Dem +8 poll. Designed to keep Dem fund raising and hopes up. The professor who leads this poll, claims to be neutral. Inside sources say he’s as left as all other UW-Madison professors. Despite the name Marquette poll, it is run by a UW Madison prof.
it’s marquette. they are so far to the left in all schools except engineering and hard sciences, where people actualy have to know how to do actual work,
it’s like polling your local newsroom.
The Milwaukee Urinal slams Walker and praises Burke daily. We are used to it here in WI.
Scott is going to win and once again, the haters will be defeated.
And I predict that it’ll be by a more comfortable margin that expected: six to seven percentage points.
The GOP is hitting Burke hard on her Trek affiliation and outsourcing. It should stick with some low information voters or at least get some moderate Dems to stay home in November.
Mary Burke is the heir to the Trek bicycle fortune. She is a limousine liberal.
I’ve been a Wisconsin resident my whole life. The only thing Wisc. Dems do is find more ways to waste taxpayer money. Of course, that’s not different from other Dems.
Burke helped run family owned Trek bicycle and she’s trying to use her tenure at Trek as an example of her business acumen. The problem for the Dims is that Trek is a big time outsourcer; they contract out bike manufacturing in China where workers make around $2/hour.
Now Burke is advocating a hike in the minimum wage. Not to worry, a hike in the minimum wage will have a minimum effect on Trek’s bottom line because 95% of Trek bikes are made outside the US.
So here’s a hypocritical limousine lib that profits off Chinese slave labor while thumbing her nose at US businesses that actually employ US workers, and struggle with hyperactive unions and regulations.
I hope the Leftists like a taste of heir own medicine. Walker is making use of Burke’s story in campaign ads and her negatives will surely rise.
I agree with your assessment, however I’d like to add one thing.
Reporting bogus polls also gives the left cover for the fraud come Election Day.
He’s only had one term. You think its more because he had to win a recall election.
She is married with two children......not that it means anything anymore especially among liberals.
The Marquette Poll has been accurate in predicting election results - period.
I thought I read elsewhere that Walker is ahead?
FReep Mail me if you want on, or off, thos Wisconsin interest ping list.
Walker has been vetted vetted vetted vetted. He’s probably the cleanest politician in America.
Yeah, the the Dems will cheat at least 20%!
No, their polls three months out it have always veered leftward. It is true that they may often tone down the bias in their last poll before the election just to preserve a false record of accuracy. However this poll, like all of the other academic political polls in Wisconsin taken before very the end of the campaign, is meant solely to affect the outcome and not predict it.
Actually, I think Scott Waker has been such an effective and outstanding governor that Walker has worn the typical Wisconsin voters tolerance for good government from two terms down to one term.
After one term Wisconsin's economy is back on track, it's fiscally in great shape and it's education system is making huge gains.
He has fixed all the damage done by a succession of Democrat Governors and by the Teachers and Public employee unions, raised the median income in the state and killed the strangle hold the teacher's union had on eduction while raising the take home pay of individual teachers.
Wisconsin voters can now put a Democrat back in power to f**k the state back up like it was back under Democrat control.
A cynical and hopeless view that is difficult to argue with.
Reminds me of what the Denver Post printed about the three recall elections for state senators.
The final numbers were not even close.
What it DID do was keep badly needed national GOP $$$ out of CO.
Your post reminds me of why I think isolationship nationally isn’t such a bad idea. No matter how much blood and treasure we spill to set things right in the world, the next administration could easily reverse all the gains, so why waste the blood and treasure in the first place?
Bingo. You nailed it. The media is pushing this for their own benefit.
let’s hope you are right...
I'd add that these polls are signals to the rats as to what extent they need to gear up their fraud machines.
Aw, Diana...I hope so.
Fraud abounds, though.
This poll over sampled dems by 6%, if that means anything.
The may poll was over sampled by 8%.
She’s a Maserati marxist.
I promise to send him some money. He has to win this race so he can be our next president.
I don’t believe this for one second. Just propaganda.
