MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A new poll shows Wisconsin voters see Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke as more empathetic than Republican Gov. Scott Walker.
The Marquette law school poll released Wednesday says 43 percent of registered voters think Walker cares about people like them. Fifty-one percent do not, and 5 percent don't know.
The poll says 36 percent think Burke cares about people like them, while 29 percent do not. Thirty-four percent say they aren't sure if Burke cares about people like them.
Pollster Charles Franklin says it's a little surprising that more than half of voters don't see a sitting governor as caring about them.
The poll of 801 registered voters was done between March 20 and 23. It is the first poll since the two campaigns started advertising in the governor's race.
