Marquette poll: Walker lead among Wisconsin Republicans dips, Clinton support slips

Gov. Scott Walker's support among Wisconsin Republicans for the presidential nomination has slipped since April, according to a new Marquette University Law School poll.

Likewise, Hillary Clinton's support for the Dem nomination has also dipped.

On the GOP side, Walker was backed by 25 percent of Republicans and GOP-leaning registered voters, while Ben Carson was next at 13 percent, Donald Trump at 9 percent and Ted Cruz at 8 percent. Marco Rubio and Carly Fiorina were tied at 7 percent apiece.

In April, Walker was backed by 40 percent of Republicans, while Rand Paul was at 10 percent, Jeb Bush at 8 percent, and Cruz and Chris Christie were at 6 percent apiece.

In the Dem race, Clinton was backed by 44 percent of Dems and Dem-leaning registered voters, while 32 percent supported Bernie Sanders. Joe Biden, who has not announced for the race, was at 12.

In April, Clinton was supported by 58 percent of Dems, while Elizabeth Warren was at 14 and Biden at 12. Warren passed on a run, while Sanders had not yet announced his bid ahead of the April poll and was not included.

In hypothetical head-to-head match ups, Clinton continued to lead the Republicans she was pitted against.

Forty-seven percent of registered voters backed Clinton, while 42 percent supported Bush. She led Walker 52-42, Cruz 50-38 and Trump 51-35.

In April, Clinton led Bush 49-38, Walker 52-40 and Cruz 52-36.

The new poll of 802 registered voters was conducted Aug. 13-15 using live interviews over land lines and cell phones. The margin of error for the full sample was plus or minus 4.3 percentage points. For the GOP primary questions, there were 334 people interviewed with a margin of error of plus or minus 6.6 percent points. On the Dem side, 396 were interviewed with a margin of error of plus or minus 6.1 percentage points.
