New Poll Shows Primary Voters Believe Alex Lasry is the Best Candidate to Beat Ron Johnson, Primary Still a Statistical Tie

Milwaukee – Today, the Alex Lasry Campaign for U.S. Senate released the results of a new poll that shows Democratic Primary voters believe Alex Lasry is the best candidate to beat Ron Johnson in November. 

According to the polling memo: “Democratic primary voters continue to believe that Alex Lasry is the Democrat who can beat Ron Johnson. More voters (36%) believe that Alex Lasry has the best chance to beat Ron Johnson, while just 28% say that describes Mandela Barnes and even fewer Sarah Godlewski (11%).”

The poll also shows the race remains a statistical tie as a result of Lasry’s significant momentum. Lasry trails just 30% to 33%, a gap well within the margin of error for this poll.

The polling memo also notes that Lieutenant Governor Mandela Barnes has failed to increase his support despite starting his paid television advertising in the past several weeks. Further, the poll shows State Treasurer Sarah Godlewski’s campaign losing some of its support from the last time this poll was conducted.

“Every poll continues to show the same thing: this race is tied, and Alex Lasry has the most momentum heading into this August Democratic Primary,” said Campaign Manager Garren Randolph. “At every opportunity Alex has continued to grow his base of support and the polls reflect that. Voters across the state are responding to his message of building an economy that works for everyone and putting more money back into the pockets of working people–which is why they believe he is the best Democrat to beat Ron Johnson in November.”

The Democratic Primary Election for the United States Senate will be held Tuesday, August 9th, 2022. For more information about Alex Lasry’s campaign, visit
