Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes released a new poll showing a 21-point lead over his Dem rivals in the race for U.S. Senate, but down 2 points compared to his campaign’s last poll.

The poll found 38 percent of respondents say they would vote for Barnes to be Wisconsin’s newest U.S. senator over other Dem candidates. Alex Lasry, on leave from his position with the Milwaukee Bucks, was closest to Barnes with 17 percent. State Treasurer Sarah Godlewski was at 9 percent and Outagamie County Executive Tom Nelson was at 8 percent.

Still, 26 percent of respondents were undecided.

The last poll from Barnes’ campaign in January found 40 percent of likely Dem primary voters backed the lieutenant governor. Meanwhile, Lasry was at 11 percent, Godlewski was at 10, Nelson was at 8 and 29 percent of respondents were undecided.

The poll was conducted by Impact Research March 16 – 23 among 449 likely 2022 Democratic primary voters using a combined telephone and text-to-web approach. The margin of error was plus or minus 4.6 percentage points.

FiveThirtyEight rates ALG Research, the company that recently became Impact Research, a B/C pollster.
