Hovde edges Thompson in latest PPP poll; both about even with Baldwin


Eric Hovde edged Tommy Thompson in the latest survey of GOP Senate primary voters from the Dem firm Public Policy Polling.

The survey found 31 percent of respondents backed Hovde, compared to 29 percent who supported Thompson. Mark Neumann was third with 15 percent, while Jeff Fitzgerald was at 9 percent. The margin between Hovde and Thompson was within the margin of error.

PPP wrote in its analysis of the poll that Thompson's approval rating has dropped since its last survey in February and 50 percent of primary voters surveyed want someone more conservative than Thompson. Thirty-four percent said they supported Thompson when given the option of someone more conservative.

Hovde, meanwhile, had a favorable-unfavorable split with GOP primary voters of 50-9. 

In the general election, Hovde was backed by 45 percent of those surveyed, compared to 44 percent who supported Dem Tammy Baldwin. She was even with Thompson at 45 percent apiece, while Baldwin led Neumann 45-41 and Fitzgerald 46-42.

PPP conducted an automated phone survey of 1,057 Wisconsin voters July 5-8 as well as an oversample of 564 usual Republican primary voters. The margin of error for the overall survey was plus or minus 3 percentage points and plus or minus 4.1 percentage points in the GOP primary.
