A new poll last week, the first of Wisconsin’s general election campaign, found Democrat Tony Evers beating Governor Scott Walker by 5 points, 49 to 44. According to Wisconsin Public Radio, the PPP poll also found Walker’s approval rating underwater, with 50% disapproving of his job performance compared to 46% who approved.
A polling analyst said to WPR, “Scott Walker is in trouble… we have a nominee (in Tony Evers) who is in strong position, relative to Scott Walker, and is potentially looking to get stronger as his party coalesces behind him.”
