Baldwin takes out front in final U.S. Senate race poll from Marquette

MILWAUKEE, WI (WTAQ) - Democrat Tammy Baldwin now has a definitive lead over Republican Tommy Thompson in the new Marquette Law School poll.

The numbers released Tuesday afternoon show that Congresswoman Baldwin has a 47-to-43 percent lead over Thompson – beyond the poll’s two-point-eight percent margin of error.

The last Marquette poll in mid-October had the two Senate hopefuls in a statistical dead-heat, with Baldwin leading by just one point at 46-45.

Independents gave a six-point edge to Baldwin, after they had endorsed Thompson by three months in the last Marquette survey.

Those who’ve voted early said they went with Baldwin 52-to-36-percent.  Most of the rest wouldn’t answer the question. Almost 12-hundred-50 voters were surveyed on the November contest between last Thursday and Sunday.

The final debate between the Senate hopefuls was held on the Friday night of the survey period.
