A lot of likely voters in next month’s Democratic primary for governor say they’re still undecided.
The latest Marquette University Law School poll found 38 percent feel that way. Thirty-one percent are backing state Superintendent of Schools Tony Evers. None of the other seven candidates were higher than six percent.
Poll Director Charles Franklin says Evers is the “clear front-runner.” He says the trick for one of the other candidates is to be visible enough to break out, and get the support of the undecided voters.
Franklin is calling the Republican race for U.S. Senate a “toss up.” State Sen. Leah Vukmir was ahead of businessman Kevin Nicholson, 34 to 32 percent.
Franklin says 30 percent of voters in that race are undecided, so there’s plenty of uncertainty that could break one way or another in the last four weeks.
The primary is August 14th.
