Poll: Walker, Burke in statistical tie

UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  Wisconsin's best-known independent poll still has the governor's race in a dead heat, less than ten weeks before voters make their choice.

The latest Marquette Law School poll released this afternoon shows Republican incumbent Scott Walker leading Democrat Mary Burke among registered voters, 47.5 to 44-percent. Both are within the margins-of-error -- the same as in the last two Marquette polls in May and July. Among likely voters, Burke continues to lead 48.6 to 47.5 -- but with only 68 days until Election Day, more than a-third of those polled still don't know enough about Burke to form an opinion about her.

There's still a gender split among registered voters. Men favor Walker by 15 percentage points, while women back the former Trek Bicycle executive by 7-points.

The Marquette poll surveyed 815 registered voters from last Thursday through Sunday, with an error margin of three-and-a-half percent either way. For likely voters, the error margin is about 4-percent plus-or-minus.
