Polling group finds Sen. Feingold would be in excellent standing against Tommy

Public Policy Polling released poll results showing that Senator Feingold looks very difficult to beat, even if former Gov. Tommy Thompson should enter the race.

“The upshot of that is Feingold leads Thompson 50-41 in a hypothetical contest. Feingold leads 47-41 with independents, a rarity for Democrats anywhere these days, and wins 88% of his party’s vote while only 82% of Republicans commit to voting for Thompson. If you lead with independents and have your party more unified around you and you’re a Democratic Senator in a blue state you don’t have much to worry about.” [Link.]
Other polls show Feingold-Wall at 48% to 34%, and Feingold-Westlake at 47% to 32%.
WPRI did a poll last month that showed Thompson winning. But we need to remember, Tommy’s not in the race at all so far.

Personally, I’m waiting for Tommy to run for mayor of Elroy. That’s a race he’d be sure to win!
