Obama continues to lead Romney in latest poll
Milwaukee, Wis. – A new Marquette Law School Poll finds former Governor Tommy Thompson holding a 28 percent to 20 percent lead over businessman Eric Hovde in next week’s Republican primary for U.S. Senate. Former Congressman Mark Neumann has the support of 18 percent and Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald 13 percent. A substantial 21 percent remain undecided. The race has tightened since the July 5-8 Marquette Law School Poll, which found Thompson with 35 percent, Hovde at 23 percent, Neumann at 10 percent and Fitzgerald at 6 percent. Twenty-five percent were undecided in the July poll.
“The GOP primary race continues to get closer,” said Marquette Law School Poll Director Charles Franklin. “Thompson held a lead of 20 percentage points over Hovde in June, 12 points in July and now 8 points in August. Likewise, Mark Neumann and Jeff Fitzgerald have rebounded from lower levels of support in early July.”
