As Democrats and Republicans prepare to go to battle for the White House next year, lost in the presidential hullabaloo is how endangered Republicans are at losing control of the U.S Senate after just gaining a majority last year. The Democratic Party has done a solid job at recruiting candidates to run for U.S Senate in 2016. One of them is former Senator Russ Feingold of Wisconsin, who lost in an upset election during the Tea Party wave of 2010. Bad news for Senator Ron Johnson (R) is that he won’t have the luxury of running for reelection during the midterm.
A new Wisconsin Public Radio poll finds Russ Feingold up big against Senator Ron Johnson, 51% to 40%, with 7% of voters undecided. Also the polls finds that 62% of voters oppose Governor Scott Walker running for another term in 2018, his presidential campaign is likely the reason why his popularity has dropped in the blue state of Wisconsin.
The poll finds Clinton with a huge lead over Bernie Sanders, while Carson takes first place on the Republican side followed by Marco Rubio. This is one of the first polls in awhile to find Trump in third place. Clinton and Sanders wins all the hypothetical match-ups against Republican candidates.
