We're less than four weeks away from the August primary election. A new Marquette University Poll finds about one in three voters in the state remain undecided about candidates for Governor and U.S Senate.

Action 2 News spoke to the Director of the Marquette Law School Poll, Professor, Charles Franklin. He said things could change in a mad dash to the finish line in both the Democratic Primary for Governor and Republican Primary for Senate. There were some changes in this new poll compared to June's numbers.

In the U.S Senate Race, the Republican Primary has inched closer since March. State Senator Leah Vukmir is now at 34% while Kevin Nicholson sits at 32%. Nicholson led in June's poll.

As for the governor's race, among those who say they will vote in the Democratic Primary, State Superintendent Tony Evers has 31% of the vote.

The remaining seven candidates are still in the single digits.

“There are a couple of things going on, enthusiasm overall in terms of how enthusiastic are you about voting, is up in the high 50’s low 60’s, that's pretty much where we would expect it to be, slightly more people say they're going to vote in the Democratic Primary rather than the Republican Primary, but it's not a huge difference,” said Franklin.

Franklin wanted to remind everyone that “polls don't vote -- people do.” He said he wants to encourage voters to use their voice on August 14th.
