Scott Walker and Hillary Clinton both receive over 50% support from their party's registered voters in a new Wisconsin Public Policy poll. However, the love for home-state the governor doesn't currently extend beyond the Republican faithful as Clinton leads him by 9 in a general election match-up.
Republican Primary: Governor Walker received 53% of the vote, far ahead of Ben Carson who polled 12%. No other Republican reached 10%. Walker has recently been polling well in other states, usually seeing around 20% Republican support. It will be interesting to see how much of this 'home field advantage' filters into future polling in other states as Walker becomes more well-known.
Democratic Primary: Hillary Clinton received 60% of those responding, with Joe Biden at 14% and Elizabeth Warren at 12%. Thus far in this year's Democratic polling, the only real battle is for a distant 2nd place.
General Election: Clinton leads by 6 to 11% over every prospective Republican opponent surveyed, with her lead at 9% over Walker. Public Policy also tested Biden and Warren against Walker; they both lead him by 3%. Wisconsin has not voted Republican since the Reagan landslide in 1984; Obama won the state by about 7% in 2012.
