(CNN) – Wisconsin's Republican Gov. Scott Walker can’t seem to shake Democrat Mary Burke, the Trek bicycle executive, in her bid to unseat in him November's election.
The latest polling shows the race statistically tied.
In the latest Marquette University poll released Wednesday, showed Burke at 48.6% to Walker’s 46.5% among likely voters. Among registered voters, Walker received support from 47.5% of respondents to Burke’s 44.1%. Both results are within the margin of error.
The August poll is in line with other independent polls that show the Walker-Burke race especially close. Democrats attempted to recall Walker in 2012, but he triumphed in that election.
Walker, often mentioned as a possible 2016 GOP candidate for President, has been dogged by allegations of wrongdoing throughout most of his term.
While the poll was in the field, new revelations came to light that Walker may have illegally coordinated with outside groups in his 2012 campaign when he faced recall.
The Marquette poll surveyed 609 likely voters and has a sampling error of plus or minus 4.1 percentage points. For registered voters, 815 were polled with a sampling error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
