Obama, Baldwin grow their leads in final Marquette Poll

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- President Barack Obama holds a 51-43 percent lead over Republican challenger Mitt Romney in the final Marquette University Law School Poll to be released before the November 6 election.

The poll, which surveyed 1,243 likely Wisconsin voters from October 25-28, also shows Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin (D) with a 47-43 percent lead over former Governor Tommy Thompson (R).

Obama held just a 1 point lead in the last MU Law poll, released on October 17, while Baldwin trailed Thompson by a point.

The poll shows that among the most interested voters, the races are much closer.

Among those voters who say they are following the elections very closely, President Obama has only a 50-48 percent lead, while Baldwin's lead shrinks to 47-46 percent.

Capitol Bureau Chief Greg Neumann will have a full report on the poll results on 27 News at 5 and 6.
