Walker regains slight lead in poll for Governor, Baldwin retains lead over Vukmir

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Democrats continue to be more enthused about voting in the November election in Wisconsin.

A new Marquette University Law School poll released Wednesday showed that 76 percent of Democratic registered voters say they are very enthusiastic about voting. That compares with 70 percent of Republicans.

Polls all year have consistently shown Democrats are more enthusiastic than Republicans.

The poll shows the race between Gov. Scott Walker and Democratic challenger Tony Evers to be about even. In September, the poll showed Evers with a slight lead.

In the U.S. Senate race, Democratic Sen. Tammy Baldwin held an 10-point lead over Republican challenger Leah Vukmir. The results were little changed from the previous month.

The poll of 799 likely voters was conducted Oct. 3 through Sunday and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.9 percentage points.
