- With less than five weeks until Election Day, a new poll shows Gov. Scott Walker is slightly ahead of Democrat Mary Burke in the race for Wisconsin governor.
The Marquette University Law School poll released Wednesday shows Walker with 50.5 percent support among likely voters compared with 44.7 percent for Burke.
That 5.8-point lead is just above the poll's 4.5 percentage point margin of error.
This is the first poll since March where the candidates were separated by more than the margin of error. The election is Nov. 4.
The poll of 585 likely voters was done between Sept. 25 and Sunday.
Among registered voters, Walker has 46 percent compared with 45 percent for Burke. That has a 3.5 percentage point margin of error.
