Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a Republican, is leading Democratic challenger Mary Burke by a comfortable 47 to 41 percent, according to a new poll conducted by Marquette Law School.

That's a slide for Burke, a former Trek bicycle executive, who had 45 percent of the vote to Scott's 47 percent in a poll last October.

The poll of 802 Wisconsin registered voters also found 54 percent believe the state is headed in the right direction, with 40 percent thinking it isn't.

That's an improvement from two years ago, when only 50 percent said the state was going in the right direction and 46 percent the wrong way.

In addition, 49 percent say that the state budget is in better shape now than it was a few years ago.

A Marquette Law School news release announcing the poll results stated:

"Voters remain largely unfamiliar with Democratic gubernatorial candidate Burke, who announced her candidacy Oct. 7. Seventy percent of respondents say they haven't heard enough about her to have an opinion or didn't know if their view was favorable or not."
