The Marquette Law School is back with their latest poll (7/11-15; 800 WI registered voters; 305 likely Democratic primary voters; 216 likely Republican primary voters) and tested the Wisconsin Republican primary where voters will determine on August 14th who advances into the general election to face Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D). According to the results, state Sen. Leah Vukmir (R-Brookfield), who has Gov. Scott Walker’s support along with many other state Republican leaders, has a very slight 34-32% edge over businessman Kevin Nicholson.
The results are consistent with other polls: close race with no clear leader, and the two candidates bouncing back and forth. Sen. Baldwin will be favored for re-election regardless of whom the Republicans nominate next month. But, the race is expected to become competitive.
