Wisconsin voters would choose Hillary Clinton over their own state’s two leading Republicans, according to a new poll.

The survey by Democratic polling firm Public Policy Polling shows that Clinton would beat Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker 54 percent to 41 percent and Rep. Paul Ryan 51 percent to 43 percent in head-to-head contests for the presidency.

“It’s a sign of how formidable Hillary Clinton would be in 2016 that she has such a big advantage over Paul Ryan and Scott Walker in their own state,” said PPP president Dean Debnam.

Walker won his recall election after challenging unions last year, while Ryan was the GOP’s 2012 vice presidential candidate.

Clinton has a strong plus-19 favorability rating in the Badger State, with 56 percent of voters holding a favorable opinion and 37 percent unfavorable.

The former secretary of state would also beat Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida 52 percent to 38 percent in Wisconsin, the poll of 1,799 voters, conducted between Feb. 21-24, found.
