Posted:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A new poll shows Gov. Scott Walker leads the field of Republican presidential candidates in his home state of Wisconsin.

The Marquette University Law School poll released Thursday shows Walker with 25 percent support among Republican primary voters, down from 40 percent he had in the last poll done in April.

The next highest in the latest poll is Ben Carson at 13 percent. Donald Trump was third at 9 percent.

The poll of 334 registered voters who identified as Republican or as independent leaning Republican was done between Aug. 13 and Aug. 16. It has a margin of error of 6.6 percentage points.

On the Democratic side, Hillary Rodham Clinton is leading with 44 percent. That question of 396 Democratic voters had a 6.1 percentage point error margin.
