PPP poll shows Walker 4 points ahead of Barrett

A new Public Policy Polling poll released today shows Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett trailing Gov. Scott Walker by four percentage points.

The survey of 851 registered voters done this past weekend shows Walker beating Barrett, 49 to 45. Two percent said they'd vote for independent candidate Hari Trivedi, while three percent were undecided. Democratic lt. gubernatorial candidate Mahlon Mitchell also trails current Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch, 46 percent to 43. The poll had a 3.4 percent margin of error.

Of those polled, 49 percent approved of Walker's job performance, while 47 percent disapproved. Only 43 percent had a favorable opinion of Tom Barrett, compared to 46 percent who had an unfavorable opinion.

The poll also showed each of the Republican candidates for U.S. Senate besting Rep. Tammy Baldwin in a general election.

Former Gov. Tommy Thompson led Baldwin 47 percent to 42, former Congressman Mark Neumann led her 46 percent to 42 and hedge fund manager Eric Hovde led her 45 to 41. Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald was not included in the poll questions.

The poll also had President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney in a near dead heat, with Obama leading Romney only slightly, 47 percent to 46 percent.
