Wisconsin: Tammy Baldwin leading Tommy Thompson

Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin leads Tommy Thompson, a former four-term governor, by 49% to 46%, according to the liberal-leaning pollster on Monday.

The three-point margin matches the 3-4 point lead Baldwin has shown in two other PPP polls, and reflects polling from Marquette University Law School and other sources that has found Baldwin with a lead in the past month.

The seven-term incumbent could become the first openly gay person elected to the U.S. Senate, and she would be the first woman to represent Wisconsin in the upper chamber.
