Three-fourths of the electorate was undecided last month in the upcoming Wisconsin Supreme Court race, according to a poll paid for by Lisa Neubauer's campaign.
Still, a memo on the survey from the pollster argues Neubauer is in a strong position against fellow Appeals Court Judge Brian Hagedorn, in part, due to the political climate.
The poll, conducted Jan. 9-14, found Scott Walker, who appointed Hagedorn to the bench, and Donald Trump are unpopular with 56 percent of likely April voters expressing an unfavorable view of the president. That included 50 percent who view him very unfavorably.
Meanwhile, 55 percent view Walker unfavorably, including 43 percent who view him very unfavorably, and 53 percent had a negative view of Republicans in the state Legislature.
When read positive information about both, Neubauer was favored 48 percent to 34 percent. But the memo didn't include details of the information on each candidate that was provided to respondents.
The survey of 600 voters was conducted by Fairbank, Maslin, Maullin, Metz & Associates via landlines and cell phones using live interviewers. The margin of error was plus or minus 4 percentage points.
