September 15, 2022 6:49AM CDT
The new Marquette Law School Poll of Wisconsin voters reports close races for governor and for the U.S. Senate.
Sen. Ron Johnson, a Republican, is supported by 49%, while his Democratic opponent, Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes, is the choice of 48% of likely voters.
That marks a stark improvement for Johnson who trailed by seven points last month.
In the governor’s race, 47% of likely voters support Democratic Gov. Tony Evers, while 44% favor Republican Tim Michels.
Those numbers are mostly unchanged.
The poll interviewed 811 registered Wisconsin voters between Aug. 10-15.
The margin of error is +/-4.2 percentage points.
