- Wednesday we received the latest and last Marquette Law Poll results leading up to that election. Democrats are on top. Among likely voters in Wisconsin, the President leads Mitt Romney 51 to 43 percent.
Tammy Baldwin leads Tommy Thompson 47 to 43 percent. But, it's the engaged voters that tell a slightly different story.
"President Obama has an 8 point lead among all likely voters, but that shrinks to just a 2 point advantage among those most engaged likely voters," Marquette Law Poll Director Dr. Charles Franklin said. "Likewise, in the Senate race, where Baldwin holds a 4 point lead among all likely voters, that shrinks to just a 1 point lead among most engaged voters."
Republicans are pressing hard to unseat the Democrats. President Obama won by 14 points in 2008.
The open U.S. Senate seat Baldwin and Thompson want has been held by Democrat Herb Kohl since 1989.
