If the numbers from the latest Marquette University Law School Poll are right, Republican Gov. Scott Walker and his Democratic challenger Tony Evers are tied. Each has 47 percent of the vote amongst the 1,154 likely voters polled by phone Oct. 24-28.
“It’s not just 47 percent-47 percent, it’s exactly the same number of respondents picking Evers as Walker. Do I need to say that’s inside the margin of error? It obviously is,” says Charles Franklin, the poll director.
