MILWAUKEE A new Marquette Law School Poll of Wisconsin voters finds a tight race for governor following last weeks statewide primary elections. Among likely voters (that is, those who say they are certain to vote), incumbent Republican Scott Walker receives 46 percent, Democrat Tony Evers receives 46 percent and Libertarian Phil Anderson 6 percent. Only 2 percent say they lack a preference or do not lean to a candidate.
Among likely voters in the race for the Wisconsin U.S. Senate seat on the ballot in November, 49 percent support the incumbent, Democrat Tammy Baldwin, and 47 percent support Republican Leah Vukmir, while 3 percent say they lack a preference or do not lean toward a candidate.
Among all registered voters surveyed in the poll, the race for governor remains tight, with Walker at 46 percent, Evers at 44 percent and Anderson with 7 percent.
There is a wider margin among all registered voters in the Senate race, with Baldwin receiving 51 percent and Vukmir 43 percent.
Awareness of Evers and Vukmir has increased among registered voters since the last Marquette Law School Poll in July. Forty-six percent lack an opinion of Evers, down from 60 percent in July. For Vukmir, 48 percent lack an opinion now, compared to 66 percent in July.
Among likely voters only, 35 percent lack an opinion of Evers and 41 percent lack an opinion of Vukmir.
Evers is viewed favorably among 38 percent of likely voters and unfavorably by 27 percent. Among all registered voters 31 percent have a favorable view and 23 percent an unfavorable opinion.

Looks like Scott Walker might get the Churchill treatment from voters despite all he’s done for them.
This just shows how stupid people are. They can’t wait to sabotage real progress.
Just like OH, I predict another “Oh, we found a stash of uncounted ballots” M.O. by the Dummycraps.
Yep. Taxes and unemployment are well below their levels from when Walker took office. He’s been one of the most effective Governors in the country, and should be running away with this election, but American voters can quite often be counted on to f**k up a good thing.
Sadly when Republicans like Walker start fixing what is wrong the lesson voters take away is that it’s safe to vote for Democrats again.
Sadly enough, I believe you're exactly right. It's a time of prosperity, so let's overturn it and drag the economy into the doldrums again.
Don’t speak too soon. Wisconsin is a pretty evenly divided state and that poll has 6% going to the Libertarian candidate. That won’t stick and I could see more of it going to Walker than the Dem.
“It’s a time of prosperity, and I’m not getting my FAIR SHARE of it, dammit! Time to vote Democrat!”
That’s usually how it works here in Pennsyltucky anyway.
I blame Ryan.
The 3rd most powerful person in Gov and he spent more time attacking his own Party than he did trying to fix WI
Wow a lot of you on here are really negative nellies. Walker was supposed to be in big trouble now hes tied. You have a good chance of beating the incumbent Democrat senator in a liberal state. And you’re all complaining about the voters being jerks?
I take some of what I said back, Walker is even in the lead. What are you all complaining about?
I’m going up to my son’s home in GB. My guess is Trump will have at least one rally up there. My worries have lessened of late.
And the Senatorial candidate should hammer the ILLEGALLY alien theme repeatedly and point out ILLEGALISM’s deepening every problem the country is facing.
There's a libertarian in the race, who probably thinks Walker should be all-in for drug legalization and open immigration. Electing Dems is what libertarians do.
Many FReeper have lost their backbones over the past year. It sucks.
Based on all he has done to revive Wisconsin, Walker should be winning this thing by twenty points.
So yes, the voters are jerks.
“Sadly when Republicans like Walker start fixing what is wrong the lesson voters take away is that its safe to vote for Democrats again.”
That’s a blue state thing when it comes to gubernatorial candidates. They elect a Dem to screw up the economy . Then they elect a Republican governor to fix it. Once fixed, they elect a Dem to foul it up again. Rinse and repeat gubernatorial politics. Their Senators are always Dems because Dem voters do not care that the garbage they send to Washington screws it up for the rest of the nation just so long as they are not in the state house to directly foul up their state economy
Wisconsin ain’t broke. Maybe if it was more people would realize how much Dems have done to break it before Walker came along and fixed the worst of the damage. Now they take it for granted and blame Evil Republicans for everything.
Too many social justice warriors, etc. WTH is wrong with people???
Kinda yes, kinda no. Somewhat on each side. Im middle of the road on this, undecided. Its 50/50. Im not sure. Yes and know. Its a grey area. Not something you can definitively answer. I tentatively agree, but I also tentatively disagree. There are doubts on both sides of your argument. Its middling-ground. I'm feeling indecisive about it. Some people see the pros, others the cons. Its not something you can just make a decision on. It's a dilemma. I can see both sides. Im vacillating. I question each premise. Im not 100% either way. Slightly leaning yes, and slightly leaning no. Maybe, maybe not. I'm hesitant to commit to an answer. Ask again later. The signs are cloudy. You can never be sure. Dont necessarily jump to any conclusions. Never say never. I should demur, before I say too much.
