Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has a slight edge over Democratic challenger Mary Burke in two new polls on one of the most competitive governors’ races of the cycle.

Among likely voters, Mr. Walker gets 48 percent to Ms. Burke’s 46 percent in a Rasmussen survey. And he has a 3-point lead, 49 percent to 46 percent, among likely voters in a separate Marquette Law School poll. Both leads fall within the surveys’ margin of sampling error.

The latest RealClearPolitics average of public polling has Mr. Walker with a 1.2-point lead in the race. First elected in 2010, he won a recall election in 2012 but has a tough contest on his hands this year in a contest being closely eyed by national Republicans and Democrats.
