Marquette Law poll: Walker 52, Barrett 45

The latest Marquette University Law School poll found Scott Walker up on Tom Barrett with 52 percent of respondents backing the guv compared to 45 percent who supported the mayor.

The survey also found Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch supported by 46 percent of respondents, compared to 41 percent who backed Mahlon Mitchell.

The Marquette release said Walker's lead "falls slightly short of statistical significance," while Kleefisch's edge "is not statistically significant."

The telephone poll of 600 likely voters was conducted May 23-26 and had a margin of error of plus or minus 4.1 percentage points. Most of the interviews were conducted before Friday's guv debate, according to the release.

The results were "statistically unchanged" in the guv's race from a 50-44 edge for Walker two weeks ago, according to the release.

The survey also found Walker's job approval rating at 51-45 and his favorable-unfavorable split at 51-46. Barrett's favorable-unfavorable split was upside down at 41-46.

In the presidential race, 51 percent of likely voters backed President Obama, while 43 percent supported Mitt Romney. Two weeks ago, that race was tied at 46.


The president's job approval rating was 52-43, while his favorable-unfavorable split was 55-41. Romney's favorable-unfavorable rating was 40-47.

The poll's toplines showed 36 percent of those surveyed considered themselves independents, 33 percent Dems and 28 percent Republicans. When "leaners" were included in that count, it was 48 percent Dems, 43 percent Republicans and 8 percent independents or neither.
