Rasmussen: Wisconsin Governor Recall Election Poll: Scott Walker 50%, Barrett 45%


Is the tide changing in Wisconsin with regards to the recall vote of embattled Governor Scott Walker? Have the unions and Democrats overplayed their hand? According to the most recent Rasmussen poll, Gov. Walker leads Democrat challenger Barrett, 50% to 45%. In an April 2012 poll 52% supported the recall of Walker; however, there appears to be a trend in just the opposite direction.

Embattled Republican Governor Scott Walker holds a five-point lead over his newly nominated Democratic challenger Tom Barrett in Wisconsin’s special recall election.

A new Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey shows that 50% of the state’s Likely Voters prefer Walker while 45% choose Barrett. Two percent (2%) prefer some other candidate and another two percent (2%) are undecided.

Also as reported at The Weekly Standard, Public Policy Polling, a Democratic firm, found the exact same results (Walker 50%, Barrett 45%) when it polled the Wisconsin recall race in April [...] but the good news for Walker is that he has an 8-point lead among independent voters.

Wisconsin Democrats have  nominated Barrett to face Walker in the June 5 recall vote. This race is going to be an important indicator for the 2012 elections. Do unions still have any strength in a potential battleground state and who will win, the GOP or Democrats, in a battleground state heading into the November 2012 U.S. presidential elections? Look for polls to shift following this recall vote.

      I live in Wisconsin and am sick about the dollars spent on this. Walker has done exactly what he was elected to do.

      I live in Wisconsin and I am sick about the out of state influence that has influenced Wisconsin Politics.Scott Walker has done nothing to make this State a better place to live. He is a meager sock puppet for the Koch Brothers. He does not have one idea that belongs to him and he has managed to divide this state like no other has. Divide and Conquer.Makes a living on the public dole, a career politician, bashing and cutting public infrastructure, jobs and wages at the same time he sends money to the wealthiest in the State. If he is in such demand I think someone else should have him. South Carolina maybe.
