The NRCC shared an overview of a new poll with WisPolitics.com that shows U.S. Rep. Ron Kind, D-La Crosse, neck-and-neck with a “named Republican candidate.”
But the House GOP’s campaign arm declined to release the identity of the Republican Kind was matched against.
A memo on the poll said it found the “named Republican candidate” backed by 45 percent of likely 2020 votes, while 43 percent supported Kind.
The poll’s margin of error was plus or minus 4.9 percentage points.
According to the memo, 23 percent of undecided voters had a favorable impression of Kind, while 24 percent had an unfavorable one.
It also found a generic GOP candidate with a 47-40 edge in the district.
The poll of 400 likely 2020 general election voters in the western Wisconsin district was conducted July 7-11 using automated calls.
Kind was unopposed in 2016 as President Trump won his district by just less than 4.5 percentage points. He then won re-election last year with 59.7 percent as Dem Tony Evers beat Republican Scott Walker in the western Wisconsin district by 2.1 percentage points.
