Public Policy Polling’s most recent poll on the race for the Republican U.S. Sebate nomination in Wisconsin shows a competitive match-up featuring Mark Neumann, Eric Hovde and Tommy Thompson.
There’s a pretty strong argument for why any of these three guys could emerge victorious. Hovde has the lead. Neumann has the momentum. And Thompson could still survive where David Dewhurst and Richard Lugar did not because of the split in the conservative ranks. In a head to head with Hovde he would trail 48-41. In a head to head with Neumann he would trail 47-42. But they could just end up splitting the vote enough to let Thompson win yet.
