Republican Governor Scott Walker has erased a five percentage-point deficit in September to pull into a statistical tie, according to the latest Marquette University Law School poll. Among likely voters, Walker has pulled ahead of challenger, Democrat Tony Evers, 47 percent to 46 percent, as the mid-term election approaches on Nov. 6.

In September, Evers led Walker by 5 percent, 49 percent to 44 percent.

The survey of 1,000 registered voters across the state has a +/- margin of error of 3.9%, but the survey sample slightly favored those identifying or leaning toward Republicans, 47 percent to 44 percent, with 8 percent identifying as independents.

Meanwhile, Senator Tammy Baldwin (53%) holds a 10-point lead over challenger Leah Vukmir for the U.S. Senate seat (43%), while Republican incumbent Brad Schimel leads Democrat Josh Kaul, 47 percent to 43 percent, for Attorney General.
