POLITICS AND POLLS

The race for governor in Wisconsin is a dead heat.  A Marquette University School Poll released today shows Democratic challenger Tony Evers tied with Republican Governor Scott Walker with 47-percent of the vote.  A poll earlier this month had Walker up by one percentage point.  Election day is Tuesday.  

Senator Tammy Baldwin has a double-digit lead over Republican challenger Leah Vukmir in the race for Baldwin’s U.S. Senate seat.  Today’s Marquette Law School Poll shows Baldwin with 54-percent support over Vukmir’s 43-percent. That’s a point better for Baldwin than a month ago.  

Healthcare continues to be the most important issue to Wisconsin voters.  A Marquette Law School Poll shows 25-percent of those surveyed say healthcare coverage is the number one issue in deciding how to cast their vote.  Education, jobs and the economy where rated tops by 20-percent of respondents and 12-percent of those polled think roads and infrastructure are the pressing issues.
