The final Marquette University Law School poll found a tight race for U.S. Senate and a dead-even contest for governor.

Fifty percent of likely voters backed U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson, while 48 percent supported Dem Mandela Barnes. The Marquette poll conducted earlier this month had Johnson at 52 and Barnes at 46. 

In the guv’s race, 48 percent supported Dem incumbent Tony Evers, while 48 percent backed GOP construction exec Tim Michels. Another 2 percent favored independent Joan Beglinger, who has dropped out of the race, but remains on the ballot.

Earlier this month, 47 percent favored Evers, while 46 percent backed Michels and 4 percent supported Beglinger.

The poll was conducted Oct. 24. The sample of 802 registered voters included 679 likely voters. The margin of error for likely voters was plus or minus 4.8 percentage points.
