In Wisconsin, Rasmussen Finds Johnson Looking Fine, Looking Gold-en

Rasmussen finds that winning the primary has given Ron Johnson’s numbers a pop:

After a decisive win in Tuesday’s Republican Primary, businessman Ron Johnson now holds a seven-point lead over incumbent Democrat Russ Feingold in Wisconsin’s U.S. Senate race. The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters shows Johnson picking up 51 percent support, while Feingold earns the vote from 44 percent. One percent of voters prefer some other candidate, and four percent remain undecided.

These numbers will probably tighten; it’s hard to imagine a campaign against Russ Feingold in Wisconsin being a cakewalk. But the state obviously is ready to consider other options, and Johnson has to feel good right now.
