Low turnout is expected, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports, in large part because the race has been forced to take a back seat to other major political events since the beginning. This, pollster Charles Franklin told the paper, could make the race even closer.
Moving into the general election, a Quinnipiac/CBS/New York Times poll found Thompson to be the strongest candidate against Baldwin, tying her with 47 percent of the vote. But Neumann does almost as well, losing by a mere 3 points to Baldwin, 48-45; as does Hovde, who loses 47-43. Fitzgerald is the weakest candidate in the general election, as in the primary.
