A new poll released on Wednesday suggests Republican Gov.
Scott Walker is the top choice for President Donald Trump’s vice president in 2020, according to the Libertarian Party of Michigan.
The poll, conducted by SurveyUSA, shows Walker leading Trump by a 55-39 percent margin in a head-to-head matchup.
The survey has a margin of error of 3.9 percent.
The Libertarian Party, which is endorsed by former Vice President Joe Biden, is running as a third-party ticket.
The party is trying to capitalize on the increasing popularity of the Green Party and the independent run by former Alaska Gov.
Sarah Palin, who is running for the White House in 2020.
The results of the poll, which was conducted Sept. 25-29, show Walker beating Trump by 12 points.
Walker is also ahead of Democrat Joe Biden and Green Party candidate Jill Stein, according the survey.
The Libertarians are trying to push back against the Trump administration, particularly its proposed budget cuts, which are set to hit many of the state’s biggest programs.
The budget proposals are a big challenge for the Libertarian ticket, with the party calling for the state to spend $1.4 billion to fund a number of programs and programs that serve the working poor and seniors.
In the past, the state has cut spending on education and health care, and the governor has repeatedly said he’s willing to take on those cuts.
The state also is struggling with a $1 billion budget shortfall and an estimated $3.2 billion in unspent tax revenue.
The governor has been under pressure from the Republican-led Legislature to approve cuts to the state budget.
This is his first campaign and the party is hoping that Walker can deliver a message of fiscal responsibility.
