A Public Policy Polling survey shows Russ Feingold leading Ron Johnson 45 to 43 percent, with 12 percent undecided.
Last week I told readers they shouldn't trust the Rasmussen poll that shows Johnson within the margin of error against Feingold. Although Rasmussen does have a record of polling that favors Republicans, it apparently is not so far off the mark on this case. However, the PPP poll appears more reliable because of the higher number of undecideds (12% vs. 6%). That's my non-expert opinion.
PPP emphasized Johnson's need to develop name recognition. That is tough right now because he's avoiding the press and learning how to become a politician. Right now the GOP is relying on TV ads.
