Democratic Party of Wisconsin: Another poll shows Leah Vukmir way down

Following Baldwin +10 Marquette University Law School poll, NBC/Marist poll shows Baldwin +14

MADISON — Following yesterday’s Marquette University Law School poll that showed Tammy Baldwin leading Republican U.S. Senate candidate Leah Vukmir 53% to 43% (Baldwin +10), a new NBC/Marist Poll today has Baldwin leading Vukmir 54% to 40% (Baldwin +14). 

What does this mean? Expect Vukmir to ratchet up the rhetoric and desperately attempt to avoid talking about her record of working for insurance companies and selling out cancer patientshearing-impaired kidsseniors, and people with mental illness.

What’s clear is this: Health care is on the ballot this November, and Vukmir will have to answer for campaigning on repealing the Affordable Care Act and gutting its protections for Wisconsinites with pre-existing conditions — protections that 93% of Wisconsinites view as important, according to Marquette University polling.
