PPP survey finds Baldwin-Thompson a toss up

U.S. Rep. Tammy Baldwin and former Gov. Tommy Thompson are about even in a new poll on the U.S. Senate race from the Dem firm Public Policy.

The poll found 46 percent of those surveyed backed Baldwin, compared to 45 percent who supported Thompson.

It also found she led former U.S. Rep. Mark Neumann 47-41 and Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald 47-39.

In all three matchups, Baldwin fared better than she did in the last PPP survey in the race conducted in October.

The poll also found Thompson has the highest name ID of the four candidates with only 16 percent who have no opinion of him. Forty-one percent view him favorably, while 42 percent had an unfavorable opinion of him.

Baldwin's numbers were split at 31-31 with 38 percent unsure about her.

The poll also surveyed GOP voters on the upcoming primary, finding 47 percent of self-identified Republican voters would prefer someone more conservative than Thompson as their nominee. But he leads a three-way matchup 39-22-22 over Fitzgerald and Neummann and tops each of them head-to-head by at least nine points.

The automated phone survey of 900 voters was conducted Thursday through Sunday and had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.3 percentage points. It included an oversample of 556 usual GOP primary voters and had a margin of error of plus or minus 4.2 percent points for that sample.

A survey released yesterday by Rasmussen Reports found Thompson leading Baldwin 50-36, Neumann up 9 points and Fitzgerald about even with the congresswoman.
