Incumbent Democrat Russ Feingold is facing fierce opposition from his Republican challenger Ron Johnson in Wisconsin, a new Rasmussen poll has revealed. The Senate race is in a statistical tie, with Feingold at 46% and Johnson at 45%. Accounting for the margin of error, the race is either in a tie or one candidate has a slight lead over the other.
Russ Feingold (D)- 46%
Ron Johnson (R)- 45%
Minor Candidates- 3%
This race is particularly startling considering that President Barack Obama defeated John McCain handily by over 14%. Further, according to Rasmussen, the majority of Wisconsonians (51%) now disapprove of the job the President is doing.
With less than 50% of the vote and a down-year for Democrats, it looks like Russ Feingold could be in for a disappointing election.
