A new poll shows that Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar has some work to do in winning over potential supporters for her presidential campaign in neighboring Wisconsin.

The Marquette University Law School poll found Klobuchar seventh out of 12 Democrats tallied in a survey of registered voters.  Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden were in a statistical tie for the lead.

Eight percent of people in the survey listed Klobuchar as their top choice in the race, which was up from the five percent support the same poll found in January.  26 percent said Klobuchar would be "acceptable," while 12 percent said they would not support her.

The poll of 411 Democrats and independents who do not lean to the Republican party was conducted between April 3 and 7 and has a margin of error of 5.6 percentage points.

Meanwhile, the poll found 37 percent of Wisconsin registered voters approve of President Donald Trump's job performance, while 52 percent disapprove.  800 people were included in that portion of the poll.

In 2016, Sanders won Wisconsin's Democratic primary. Trump lost the Republican primary but went on to narrowly defeat Hillary Clinton in the state's general election.
