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