52% of registered voters support Baldwin over Hovde in the latest Marquette University poll

MADISON – In the first Marquette University Law School poll since Republican businessman Eric Hovde entered the race, the Democratic senator said. Tammy Baldwin leads among registered voters, while the race is tied among likely voters.

Hovde, a banking and real estate magnate, launched his attempt in February to deny Baldwin a third term. He previously ran for Senate in 2012, but finished a close second to former Republican Wisconsin Governor Tommy Thompson in the primary. Thompson then lost to Baldwin by almost six points. Hovde also weighed in on a race against Baldwin in 2018 but withdrew briefly considered a run for governor in 2022.

Among registered voters, 52% said they supported Baldwin, while 47% supported Hovde. That includes the 18% of undecided voters who were asked to name the candidate they would support if they had to choose. Without those undecided voters, Baldwin led 44-37.
