Marquette Poll: Thompson leads GOP rivals and Baldwin

Former Gov. Tommy Thompson maintains his lead among likely GOP primary voters and leads U.S. Rep. Tammy Baldwin in a potential general election matchup in the latest Marquette Law School poll.

In the GOP primary, Thompson led the field with 34 percent, followed by former U.S. Rep. Mark Neumann with 16 percent, businessman Eric Hovde with 14 percent and Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald with 10 percent.

Among all likely voters, Thompson led Baldwin 49 percent to 41 percent. Baldwin and Neumann were tied at 44 percent, while Baldwin lead Fitzgerald 45 to 39 percent and lead Hovde 45 to 36 percent.

The telephone poll was conducted June 13-16. The full sample of 707 registered voters has a margin of error of 3.8 percent, while the sample of 594 likely voters has a margin of error of 4.1 percent and the sample of 344 likely GOP primary voters has a margin of error of 5.4 percent.

In the presidential race, President Obama led presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney by a 49 percent to 43 percent margin among the likely voters surveyed.

Obama led by a wider margin -- 53 percent to 39 percent -- among the registered voters in the survey.

Fifty-three percent of registered voters had a favorable opinion of Obama and 39 percent had an unfavorable opinion of him. For Romney, 35 percent had a favorable opinion, while 43 percent viewed him unfavorably.
