Despite some mediocre approval numbers, Governor Scott Walker has surged into a narrow lead in the recall election scheduled for June.
A new automated survey from a Democratic polling firm finds that Gov. Scott Walker (R) has a narrow lead over both of his likely rivals in Wisconsin’s June recall election.
According to Public Policy Polling, Walker leads Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett (D) 50 percent to 45 percent and former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk (D) 50 percent to 43 percent.
That’s a shift in PPP polling from February, when Barrett had a slim lead over Walker while Falk tied the incumbent.
“We found with almost all of the recall elections last summer that the electorate just wasn’t as Democratic as 2008,” he said. Moreover, “[I]ndependents have flipped from our last poll, from supporting Milwaukee mayor Tom Barrett by 12 to going for Walker by three.”
