Republican Governor Scott Walker owns a one-point lead on Democratic challenger Tony Evers among likely voters in the latest Marquette University Law School poll.

That's a change from the five-point lead Evers, the superintendent of schools for the state of Wisconsin, had on Walker in September. The Governor's lead is within the margin of error within the poll.

In the Wisconsin Senate race, incumbent Democrat Tammy Baldwin owns a 53 to 43 percent lead on Republican challenger Leah Vukmir. That's a one-percent drop from the September poll.

For Attorney General, incumbent GOP candidate Brad Schimel leads Democratic challenger Josh Kaul 47 to 43 percent. Schimel's lead has dropped from a seven-percent advantage in September.

Poll organizers say the margins of error are plus-minus 3.6 percent for the 1,000 eligible Wisconsin voters sampled, and plus-minus 3.9 percent for the 799 likely voters. It said 47 percent of the polled voters lean Republican, 44 percent lean Democrat and eight percent remain independent.
