With less than a week to go before the election, a new poll shows state Supreme Court Justice Rebecca Bradley with a small lead over her challenger.
A Marquette University Law School Poll conducted over the Easter weekend shows Bradley with a five point lead over Appeals Court Judge JoAnne Kloppenburg, running at 41-36 among likely voters. Still, poll director Charles Franklin noted that 18 percent of voters were still undecided.
While the race is within the margin of error for the poll, Franklin said that five point gap is a notable advantage for Bradley. However, he noted its not a massive one, and the outcome of the election could depend heavily on where those undecided voters go on Election Day.
Bradley is running to retain the seat on the high court she was appointed to last fall by Governor Scott Walker, following the death of Justice Patrick Crooks.
The election is April 5th.
