PPP Poll: Burke Only Down by Three and Feingold Beating RoJo

Today, released a poll showing Mary Burke behind Scott Walker by only a three point margin--48% to 45%--and former U.S. Senator Russ Feingold beating current U.S. Senator Ron Johnson by a much larger 47% to 41% margin, in a potential rematch.

Other results of interest:

  • The poll shows Ron Kind losing to Ron Johnson by a 39% to 41% margin.
  • Walker's job approval rating is at 50%, with 47% disapproving.  
  • Obama's job approval rating is 45%, with 50% disapproving. 
  • 45% say they will vote Democrat for state legislature, while 41% say they will vote Republican. 
  • Among independents, Burke is leading 46% to 44%, while Feingold is winning independents by a 47% to 34% margin.

PPP has had a pretty good, though not perfect, record recently in Wisconsin.  In 2012, they said both Baldwin and Obama would win by three points (Obama ended up winning by seven and Baldwin six) and in the recall election they said Walker would win by three and he ended up winning by seven.
