The August primary elections are coming up quickly. Yet there's still no Democratic front-runner in the Democrats' bid to prevent Republican Gov. Scott Walker from winning another term in November.

The number of candidates is in the double digits. However, a few of them could be pulling ahead, according to a straw poll that WisPolitics.com conducted at last weekend's state Democratic Party convention.

WisPolitics.com Editor JR Ross says the poll wasn't scientific, but the results could be illuminating. He talked about the poll with Ann-Elise Henzl for this week's Capitol Notes segment.
