Results of a new Marquette Law School Poll to be released Thursday will for the first time show Wisconsin voters' temperature on the Supreme Court race between Justice Rebecca Bradley and state Appeals Court Judge JoAnne Kloppenburg.
The poll also takes a look at voters' opinions in the presidential primaries. Wisconsin's presidential primary and the Supreme Court election fall on April 5.
The last Marquette poll, released in late January, showed Gov. Scott Walker still had a lot of work to do rebuilding his support in Wisconsin, four months after ending his presidential bid.
The poll found 38 percent of registered voters approve of Walker's job performance, which was unchanged from the last poll in November. And only 36 percent say they would like Walker to run for a third term in 2018, one point higher than a poll in late September.
The poll also found Democratic challenger Russ Feingold is holding a double-digit lead over incumbent Republican Sen. Ron Johnson. The 50-37 Feingold lead is similar to the November Marquette poll.
Johnson defeated Feingold in the 2010 U.S. Senate election. The past three polls have showed Feingold leading by margins of 5, 14 and 11 points.
