MILWAUKEE (WKBT) – A new Marquette Law School poll of Wisconsin voters shows little has changed since June for who they will support in the presidential race.

According to the poll, Joe Biden is favored by 49 percent and President Donald Trump by 44 percent. Six percent of voters say they will vote for neither, don’t know who they will vote for, or did not want to give an opinion. In June, Biden was supported by 50 percent and President Trump by 44 percent.

The new poll also found that the percentage of voters who are concerned personally about the COVID-19 pandemic has increased. Voters overall favor requiring masks be worn in public, but opinion is almost evenly decided on whether children should go to school in person at the start of the new school year.

The poll was conducted Aug. 4-9, 2020. The sample included 801 registered voters in Wisconsin who were interviewed by cell phone or landline, with a margin of error of +/- 3.9 percentage points. There are 675 likely voters included in the poll, with a margin of error of +/- 4.2 percentage points.
