A new CNN poll found tight races for the U.S. Senate and guv in Wisconsin with the incumbents in both contests at 50 percent.

In the Senate race, 50 percent of likely voters said they backed Johnson, while 49 percent favored Barnes.

In the guv’s contest, 50 percent of likely voters backed Evers, while 48 percent supported GOP Michels. Independent Joan Beglinger, who has dropped out of the race but remains on the ballot, wasn’t listed as an option in the question posed to respondents.

CNN also asked about Wisconsin’s secretary of state race, finding 49 percent supported Dem incumbent Doug La Follette, while 48 percent backed GOP challenger Amy Loudenbeck, a state rep from Clinton.

The poll found:
*Barnes’ favorable-unfavorable rating was 44-49, compared to 46-51 for Johnson.
*Evers’ favorable-unfavorable rating was 50-47, compared to 44-47 for Michels.
*43 percent approve of the job President Biden is doing, while 57 percent disapprove.

The poll was conducted Oct. 13-17 using a combination of online and telephone interviews. The sample was drawn from a probability-based online panel and a registration-based sample. The full sample of 905 registered voters had a margin of error of plus or minus 4.2 percentage points. Likely voters were identified through a series of questions about their intention to and interest in voting, as well as past history. The sample of 714 likely voters had a margin of error of plus or minus 4.5 percentage points.
