A new poll released on Thursday revealed Gov. Scott Walker (R-Wis.) trailing his Democratic challenger Tony Evers in the upcoming Wisconsin gubernatorial race.
According to an NBC News/Marist poll, Walker trails Evers by 13 points. 54 percent of people surveyed favored Evers, while only 41 percent of poll takers backed Walker.
The survey asked people if they thought Walker deserved to be reelected. Only 34 percent agreed with that statement while 61 percent said a new person should be given a chance. Five percent of survey takers were unsure.
Walker said earlier this year that he saw this coming and claimed that a “blue wave” could hit his state in the midterm elections.
Walker ran for president in 2016 and failed. He’s now running for his third term as governor.
NBCS/Marist conducted phone interviews with 1,040 adults in Wisconsin from July 15-19, 906 of which were registered voters. The margin of error for the registered voters is plus or minus 3.8 percentage points.
