MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A new poll shows a growing enthusiasm gap among Republican voters in Wisconsin.
 
The Marquette University Law School poll released Wednesday shows that 78 percent of Republicans say they are absolutely certain to vote in November's election where a new president will be chosen.
That is down from 87 percent in March and 90 percent four years ago.
 
However, Democrats who say they intend to vote rose from 81 percent in March to 84 percent in the latest poll.
Wisconsin Republican Party spokesman Pat Garrett says Republicans in the state are "engaged, activated and motivated for victory." He notes that nearly 100,000 more Republicans than Democrats voted in the state's April primary.
The poll of 800 registered voters was conducted between June 9 and Sunday and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percentage points.
