August 20, 2015 04:16 PM

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A new poll shows a tightening in the race for U.S. Senate between former Sen. Russ Feingold and current Sen. Ron Johnson.

The Marquette University Law School poll released Thursday shows Feingold with 47 percent support among registered voters, compared with 42 percent for Johnson. In the last poll done in April, Feingold was ahead of Johnson 54 percent to 38 percent.

Feingold, a Democrat, is seeking a rematch with Republican Johnson, who defeated him in 2010.

The poll of 802 registered voters was done between Aug. 13 and Aug. 16. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.3 percentage points.

The election is more than 14 months away.
