Poll shows Baldwin up in favorability

By  | 

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A new poll shows that Democratic U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin's favorability numbers are in better shape than her opponent Republican Leah Vukmir.

The Marquette University Law School poll released Tuesday shows 48 percent of likely voters have a favorable opinion of Baldwin, compared with 40 percent unfavorable.

For Vukmir, only 26 percent have a favorable opinion while 38 percent are unfavorable.

The poll showed Baldwin leading Vukmir 53 percent to 42 percent.

The poll comes after months of attack ads in both sides of the Senate race.

The poll of 614 likely voters was conducted between Sept. 12 and Sunday. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percentage points.
