Wisconsin: Poll Shows Good News For Feingold Re-Election

Sen. Russ Feingold (D) appears to be well-positioned for his re-election campaign next year, according to new survey paid for by the liberal blog Daily Kos.

Feingold led one of the state’s most popular Republicans, Rep. Paul Ryan, in a hypothetical matchup, 53 percent to 32 percent. When Feingold was pitted against another Republican, former Rep. Mark Green, he lead by a similar margin, 52 percent to 34 percent.

Neither Ryan nor Green — nor any well-known Republicans — have expressed interest in running for Senate against Feingold.

Also in the poll, Feingold had a 56 percent favorable rating and 36 percent unfavorable rating.

The Research 2000 poll took the opinion of 600 likely voters from June 8 to June 10 and had a margin of error of 4 points.
