MADISON (WKOW) -- The top five Democratic presidential candidates have a slight lead against President Donald Trump according to a new University of Wisconsin-Madison poll.

This year, the University of Wisconsin–Madison Elections Research Center (ERC) conducted new polls in three Midwestern battleground states: Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. 

The ERC poll was co-sponsored by the Wisconsin State Journal. Editor Matthew Defour and political reporter Riley Vetterkind discuss Democratic match-ups and which candidate is the preferred choice in Wisconsin.

Full results can be found here.

HEMP INDUSTRY:

The State Assembly recently approved millions to help aid the struggling dairy industry last week, but one industry that felt left out was hemp.

The Wisconsin Hemp Alliance is urging lawmakers to invest in research and innovation for hemp fiber.

President of the alliance Rob Richard explains why the fiber crop is easier to grow and how Wisconsin could be a leader in the industry with financial assistance.
