Barrett widens lead over Falk in Marquette poll, even with Walker

Tom Barrett has widened his lead over Kathleen Falk in the Dem primary for guv, according to the latest Marquette University Law Poll.

The survey also found Barrett about even with Gov. Scott Walker in a head-to-head.

In the Dem primary, Barrett led Falk 38 percent to 21 percent among those who said they would vote in Tuesday's primary. Eight percent favored Doug La Follette, while 6 percent backed Kathleen Vinehout.

The Marquette poll from March found Barrett leading Falk 36-29 in a survey that was conducted the week before Barrett got into the race.

The survey found 47 percent of registered voters backed Barrett in a match up with Walker, while 46 percent supported the guv. Among likely voters, it was 48 Walker, 47 Barrett.

Walker led Falk 49-42 among registered voters and 49-43 among likely voters.

The poll of 705 registered Wisconsin voters was conducted Thursday through Sunday using landlines and cell phones. The margin of error was plus or minus 3.8 percentage points for the full sample.

For the 561 respondents who said they were likely to vote in the June recall election, the margin of error was plus or minus 4.2 percentage points.

For the 451 respondents who said they would vote in the Dem primary, the margin of error was 4.7 percentage points.

The survey also found President Obama leading Mitt Romney 51-42, a slight uptick for the president from the 48-43 lead he had in late March.
