The latest Marquette Law School Poll shows Hillary Clinton leading Donald Trump in Wisconsin. Poll Director Charles Franklin says Clinton’s margin among registered voters dipped a little from the last MU poll in late March, when she had a ten point margin. The latest poll has her at 45-35 over Trump. Among likely voters her lead grew to 46-37 over Donald Trump.
The poll also asked Bernie Sanders voters if they’d be willing to support Clinton. “Clinton is only getting 67% of their votes. Trump’s not getting much, so that argument that argumnent that there are a lot of Sanders supporters who’d vote for Trump is not supported in our data,” Franklin said.
It’s the first Wisconsin presidential poll to be released since Trump and Clinton became their parties presumptive nominees. The poll also shows that Bernie Sanders would do better in Wisconsin against Trump, 56-31 among registered voters.
“This has been the pattern all year,” Franklin noted. “And it’s the result that leaves Sanders supporters scratching their heads and wondering ‘why isn’t Bernie the nominee?'”
Among likely voters in the U.S. Senate race, Democrat Russ Feingold continues to lead Republican Senator Ron Johnson 51-42 percent.
