According to a new Tarrance Group poll, state Sen. Leah Vukmir (R-Brookfield) has taken the lead in the Wisconsin US Senate Republican primary. Sen. Vukmir enjoys backing from the conservative flank of the Wisconsin GOP, and, according to the survey released yesterday (800 WI likely Republican primary voters), she has pulled ahead of businessman and former Democrat Kevin Nicholson, 36-29%.
Earlier, an American Viewpoint survey (5/29-31; 500 WI likely Republican primary voters) found Mr. Nicholson with a 32-30% edge. In early April, WPA Intelligence (4/2-4; 1,028 WI likely Republican primary voters) found Mr. Nicholson boasting a large lead, 45-27%.
