The most recent Marquette Law School pollhas Republican Governor Scott Walker and Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch ahead of their Democrat challengers in the Wisconsin recall election. Governor Walker leader Tom Barrett 52% to 45%, while Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch leads Mahlon Mitchell, 46% to 41%. According to the poll, Walker also has a job approval rating over 50%.
A new Marquette Law School poll finds Governor Scott Walker with 52 percent to Mayor Tom Barrett with 45 percent among 600 likely voters in next week’s recall election. That lead falls slightly short of statistical significance. The poll was taken May 23-26, with most interviews completed before last Friday’s first gubernatorial debate, and has a margin of error of +/- 4.1 percentage points. Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch had 46 percent and Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin president Mahlon Mitchell had 41 percent, with 11 percent not expressing a preference.
The PJ Tatler goes on to discuss other positive polling data for the incumbent Republican Governor in that Walker in that twice as many Wisconsin voters think the jobs situation is improving compared to the survey released two weeks ago, 38-20% and Walker also led Barrett 50% -43% when voters were asked which candidate would do better at creating jobs.
What is hurting the challenger Tom Barrett the most, probably the fact that the Lefts claims that Walker’s signing last spring to limit the collective bargaining power of public employee unions, a reform his opponents said would be a “disaster” and destroy public education in the state, was a total lie. This was supposed to be the reason for the recall. However, when Democrat challenger couldn’t name one single public school that has been harmed by Walker’s reforms. Oops. Can you say, Democrats will lose.
