Walker polling roundup: Guv leads in Iowa, top tier in national poll

Gov. Scott Walker continued to lead the GOP pack in Iowa, while a new national poll has him in the top tier among Republican presidential contenders.

The Quinnipiac University poll found Walker leading the pack among Iowa Republicans for the GOP presidential nomination. Twenty-one percent of respondents backed Walker in the latest poll, compared to 25 percent in February.

In the latest survey, Rand Paul and Marco Rubio were at 13 percent each, while Ted Cruz was at 12 percent and Mike Huckabee at 11 percent.

The poll also asked Republicans if there was any GOP candidate they definitely would not support. Jeb Bush topped that list at 25 percent, while Chris Christie was next at 20 percent.

Walker's favorability rating with GOP voters was 59-11, and only 3 percent said they definitely would not vote for him.

The poll of 667 likely GOP caucus participants was conducted April 25 through May 4 with live interviews over land lines and cell phones. The margin of error was plus or minus 3.8 percentage points.

A new survey from NBC News and the Wall Street Journal found Walker trailing Hillary Clinton head-to-head 50-40 with half of respondents saying they didn't have an opinion of Walker.

Among GOP primary voters, Walker was third at 14 percent behind Bush (23 percent) and Rubio (18 percent).

The survey of 1,000 adults was done over land lines and cell phones April 26-30. The margin of error for the overall sample was plus or minus 3.1 percentage points, while it was plus or minus 6.19 percentage points for GOP primary voters.

A new Monmouth University Poll out today found New Jersey voters are not enthusiastic about Christie's bid for the presidency. He trailed Hillary Clinton 53-30 percent in a hypothetical head-to-head match up. The poll also found more New Jersey voters believed Bush would be a better president than Christie 42-27 and said the same of Walker 34-24 over their governor.

The survey of 441 registered voters was conducted Friday through Sunday and had a margin of error of plus or minus 4.7 percentage points.
