WI-Sen: St. Norbert College Poll Has Russ Feingold (D) Crushing Ron Johnson (R) 51-40

Some more good news out of Wisconsin courtesy of St. Norbert College and Wisconsin Public Radio. First off, if failed Presidential candidate, Governor Scott Walker (R. WI) is thinking about running for a third term in 2018, he might want to either get ready now or reconsider because his approval rating is at a dismal 36/57. But there's more encouraging news in both the Presidential and U.S. Senate races:


In the upcoming presidential election, Democrats favor Hillary Clinton (47 percent) over Bernie Sanders (42 percent), while Republicans are split among Ben Carson (20 percent), Donald Trump (18 percent) and Marco Rubio (18 percent), who has been endorsed by Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, R-Rochester, and a score of other Republican legislators. Jeb Bush, who recently picked up former Gov. Tommy Thompson's endorsement, is polling at 3 percent in the state.

The poll found Democrat Russ Feingold of Middleton leading Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Oshkosh, 51 percent to 40 percent.

The poll was conducted Oct. 14-17 among 603 registered voters and has a margin of error of +/- 4 percentage points. It included 47 percent self-identified Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents, compared with 39 percent self-identified Republicans and GOP-leaning independents.

Wendy Scattergood, an assistant political science professor at St. Norbert College, said the poll has more Democrats because it is weighted to reflect presidential election year participation demographics, which tend to skew Democratic. She noted independents are more pessimistic about the economy than Democrats or Republicans, and also 36 percent approved of Walker's job performance, compared with 3 percent of Democrats and 85 percent of Republicans. - Wisconsin State Journal, 10/21/15

Things are looking very good for us but it's still very early and Johnson will be getting the help from the Koch Brothers and Karl Rove for sure. Click here to donate and get involved with Feingold's campaign so we can return him to the U.S. Senate:
