Scott Walker in Trouble in WI

A new poll from NBC News and Marist College shows Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker trailing a Democratic challenger by double-digits, part of a raft of rough results for Republicans across three Midwestern states.

The poll showed Wisconsin state education superintendent Tony Evers, the Democratic primary front-runner, taking 54 percent to Walker's 41 percent in a head-to-head match-up. Walker has warned for months that Republicans need to be active and vigilant as he runs for a third term, with Democrats winning a series of down-ticket elections in Wisconsin earlier this year.

But Democrats have had to grapple with a crowded Democratic primary field that, at one point, included more than a dozen candidates but has shrunk to eight ahead of the Aug. 14 primary. Evers has consistently polled at the front of the Democratic field.

The results are sharply more negative for Walker than the most recent Marquette University poll of the governorís race in June, which showed Walker narrowly ahead of Evers, 48 percent to 44 percent.
