Seems like Elections in Wisconsin are always very close these days, and here are two more following this trend. Senate race incumbent Republican Senator Ron Johnson is running just one point forward of Democrat Lieutenant Governor Mandela Barnes in a toss-up competition and governor race is currently even between incumbent Democratic governor Tony Evers and Republican Tim Michels.

Johnson enthusiastically support from the base of the Republican Party and supported by the fears of Wisconsin voters about crime and economic issues, although his views on in elections 2020 may repel some independents.

Meanwhile, Barnes has solidified the Democratic base and is getting stronger. support from those who place great importance on in issue of abortionthe main factor is his voters give for supporting him. As a result, voters also like Barnes personally more than Johnson.

This is different from dynamic in other battlefield states where the Republicans are not incumbents. AT Pennsylvania, Georgiaas well as ArizonaRepublicans vote more out of opposition to Democrats than sympathy for their own candidate.

But as much as the Republican base likes Johnson, he faces the same measure. of dislike for another side. Most of those who support Barnes say that main reason is to stand up to Johnson, not because they like Barnes. This is especially true for independent currently support Barnes.



Influence of Johnson struts

which role do the looks of ron johnson on 2020 play? Republicans don’t care one. But they may alienate some independents.

Republicans overwhelmingly support Johnson, do they think he accepted or wanted cancel the 2020 election results – and a lot of people say it’s not. sure What was it. However, there are few more crossover with Barnes in third of Republicans who believe Johnson wanted elections were cancelled.

He has a 10 point lead. over Michels on this measure, but it is not translate a lot of Advantage in in race. He even runs with barnes, who has a smaller advantage in attractiveness against Johnson.


Majority of voters want abortion should be legal in Wisconsin, and Evers is viewed by the majority as a candidate who will defend abortion access. But for now it’s top issue both Democrats and Evers supporters, just half of voters generally say it’s very important in their vote and less than a third of Michels supporters do (and most of they are not want to be legal).
