Democratic Rep. Tammy Baldwin continues to lead former Republican Gov. Tommy Thompson in the Wisconsin Senate race.
Baldwin leads, 49 percent to 46 percent, in a survey released Monday by Democratic firm Public Policy Polling. The survey of 979 likely voters was conducted Oct. 4-6, and has a 3.1 percent margin of error.
From the pollster's analysis: "Baldwin leads mostly thanks to a 52/40 advantage with independent voters. She's up big with women (50/43) while managing to run about even with men, trailing only 48-47. She's running even with white voters at 47% and leads with non-whites 65-30."
The PollTracker Average shows Baldwin ahead, 50.1 percent to 43.3 percent.
