The newest Marquette University poll came out today, and having seen the results, it’s no wonder Gov. Scott Walker has unleashed a barrage of negative attack ads against Democratic frontrunner Mary Burke.
Among likely voters, Burke led Walker, 47% to 46%.
While those numbers are still well within the Marquette poll’s margin of error (+ or – 3.5%), it’s notable that in the May Marquette University poll Gov. Walker led Burke among likely voters by 48% to 45%.
Obviously there’s a lot of time between now and November’s election, but the fact that Mary Burke has shown positive progress in the face of blistering attacks by Gov. Walker is certainly an encouraging sign.
