According to a new poll released Tuesday by Gravis Marketing, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke has a 5-point lead over Republican Gov. Scott Walker.
A poll released Tuesday showing Mary Burke ahead of Gov. Scott Walker by five points has widened the Democratic challenger’s lead in Brad Jones’ model of polling for the Wisconsin gubernatorial election.
Gravis Marketing released a poll of 908 registered voters in which Burke got 50 percent to Walker’s 45 percent, with 4 percent listed as unsure. The poll was conducted through automated telephone calls.
Jones developed a model to estimate the level of support for the candidates based on polls, and after the Gravis poll was entered it showed Burke getting 51.8 percent of the two-party vote. (See more on the model in last week’s Cap Times cover story.)
With just over a month left until election day, the fact that polling shows Mary Burke with momentum can’t be viewed as anything but a good thing.
