New poll reveals race for governor virtually tied

The race for governor in Wisconsin looks to be a toss-up right until voters head to the polls. A new Rasmussen poll out Wednesday shows Mary Burke with a slight edge, 49% to Governor Walker's 48%. The result falls well within the poll's margin of error.

The poll will no doubt be viewed as good news for Mary Burke considering it's coming from Rasmussen Reports, a polling firm founded by conservative Scott Rasmussen.

Mary Burke is relying on big name visitors in a final campaign to turn out a win.  Former President Bill Clinton will appear with Burke on Friday in Milwaukee. President Obama will visit the Brew City on Tuesday for another event.

Governor Walker has a more traditional schedule in the final week of the campaign. He will attend the 2014 Marketplace Conference Thursday at the Potawatomi Expo Center. He has not announced any plans for other rallies or events.

Another Marquette University Law School Poll is scheduled to be unveiled Wednesday, October 29th. It will be the final major poll of Wisconsin voters before Election Day on November 4th.
