Marquette poll: Walker 50, Burke 45 among likely voters

Gov. Scott Walker opened up a slight lead among likely voters on Dem rival Mary Burke in the latest Marquette University Law School Poll, the first time since March the advantage for either candidate has been outside the margin of error.

Fifty percent of likely voters backed Walker, while 45 percent supported Burke. Among registered voters, it was 46-45 Walker.

In the last poll two weeks ago, Walker and Burke were tied at 46 percent apiece among registered voters. Among likely voters, Walker had a 49-46 edge.

Poll director Charles Franklin said with the race now a little more than a month away, he is starting to focus more on likely voters.

He also called Walker’s lead on Burke among men “astonishing.” Walker led among men 62-34, while Burke led among women 54-40.
