MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Republican Gov. Scott Walker is leading Democrat Mary Burke in the last Marquette University Law School poll released before Tuesday's election.

The poll released Wednesday showed Walker with 50 percent support, compared with 43 percent for Burke. The poll had a margin of error of 3 percentage points.

Walker and Burke were tied with 47 percent support in the previous poll released two weeks ago. The one before that, on Oct. 1, showed Walker with a narrow 5-point lead.

The latest poll of 1,164 likely voters was done between Oct. 23 and Sunday.

Walker was campaigning Wednesday around the state with U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, while Burke was in Green Bay.
