DE PERE, Wis. (WTAQ) - A major Wisconsin poll has Republican Scott Walker with a nine-point lead over Democrat Tom Barrett in the governor’s race.

The St. Norbert College-Wisconsin Public Radio poll has Walker with a 50 to 41 percent lead. Only 6 percent were undecided, and 86 percent said it was not likely they’ll change their minds in the two weeks before the election.

Just over 400 likely voters were surveyed last Tuesday through Friday. The poll has a margin of error of plus-or-minus 5 percentage points.

Both Walker and Barrett have highlighted their plans to create jobs. And a quarter of those in the St. Norbert poll said jobs and the economy determined who they’ll vote for.

Party philosophy ranked second at 17-percent. 55 percent said they were against the high-speed passenger train between Milwaukee and Madison.

Federal stimulus money was granted for the project, but Walker promises to scrap it if he’s elected. 44 percent supported the train, while 71 percent said they’re not likely to ride it if it’s built.
