    Wisconsin GOP Gov. Scott Walker leads Democratic challenger Tom Barrett, mayor of Milwaukee, 52 percent to 43 percent among likely voters in Walker’s June 5 recall election, according to a new poll from We Ask America.

    The other five percent are undecided, and the poll has a three percentage point margin of error.

    Walker drew the ire of Democrats by curbing public workers’ collective bargaining rights, and unions are naturally working hard against him.

    “While other polls also show Walker in the lead, no one is suggesting that this race is anywhere near over,” We Ask America says in a statement. Walker’s advantage among self-described independents stands only at 48 percent to 45 percent. “And the underlying numbers seem fluid,” the group says.

    Still, “For now, [the] light is shining a bit brighter on Scott Walker.” His supporters point out that he was duly elected in 2010 and that in most states it wouldn’t have been so easy for Walker’s opponents to succeed in pushing a recall election.

    The race has turned into something of a national proxy, with big labor providing big support for Barrett and conservative political action committees giving Walker major help. The crux of the conflict between Democrats and Republicans is how to deal with state budget shortfalls.

    Many political observers also view the contest as a dry run for November’s general election. “We’re within the gravitational pull of Election Day, so anything like this that involves the key players and lots of money is going to be understood as a prelude,” Robert Reich, former Clinton administration labor secretary, told Politico.


    From DailyKos/PPP:
    http://althouse.blogspot.ca/2012/05/new-daily-kosppp-poll-walker-50-barrett.html

    Walker 50%, Barrett 45%.
    Likely voters. That's exactly the same as a month ago.

    And in the Senate race: "Democrat Tammy Baldwin down 4-5 points against all comers (45-41 vs. Eric Hovde, 46-42 vs. Mark Neumann, and 47-42 vs. Tommy Thompson)."


    And from a Moveon email:
    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/05/15/move-on-dnc-pulling-out-of-wisconsin-recall

    BREAKING NEWS FROM WISCONSIN: The Democratic National Committee isn't investing in the massive get out the vote effort in Wisconsin to recall Scott Walker.

    Wisconsin is ground zero for Democrats this summer—and there are only three weeks before Election Day—which is why this breaking news just doesn't make sense.

    The question is can Walker parlay a potential win in June into delivering his state to Romney in November?

    I hope you have all been reading my posts on what is happeneing in Wisconsin. I have pegged everything correctly so far. With the latest news on how bogus the jobs numbers were for the state.....BLS said Wisconsin lost some 30,000 jobs where as latest hard numbers from last year showed Wisconsin created 23,000 jobs. I think i also said that in a post.

    So exactly why again is this great govenor being recalled??

    Because he threatens the union bosses and the Democrats who long ago entered into an unholy alliance. Good laws and letting the unions get their way in return for votes and money for the Democrats. All good until the gravy train ran out of gravy and the people wised up, getting tired of paying for the public employees getting better benefits and taxes raised for every entitlement that returned votes to the Democrats.

    Great. What will be publicized is the Democrats are not for the union workers but the union bosses. When the Govt took over Chrysler, the pension plan of the Indiana Public Employees (teachers and cops) were screwed in favor of the UAW because their union wasn't as profitable for the Democrats. The Party will even turn on public employees when it suits them.

    Great topic. Excellent news plus no nonsense from RJ's bolshevik bois (yet).

    "Defeating Walker in the June recall was supposed to be a precursor to reelecting Obama in November. Instead, the labor movement may lose its all-in bet in Wisconsin and prove itself, and Obama, even weaker than believed."

    The turnout for Walker in the recall primary was a great sign. So was the report that Democrat bigwigs now consider defeat inevitable and are withdrawing financial support. This is a crucial battle between taxpayers and those who live off of them in a shameless, unsustainable way.

    Scott Walker doesn't need all this controversy and abuse in his life or that of his family. He gives new meaning to the phrase "public servant."

    The people of Wisconsin deserve praise for addressing the public sector union and compensation problems in a timely way. It's easy for opportunist Democrat politicians to give away the store. It's a major challenge to clean up their mess. Other states, like mine, are still in denial.

    I've seen several polls with it being 5 or 6 points, regardless, the outcome would would be quite unfortunate should Walker stay in office.

    Tell that to the the thousands of public sector employees in our state who's jobs have actually been been saved instead of cut because the budget was fixed. How unfortunate it is for those same employees in Illionois or California who are losing thier jobs because thier democratic leaders have to make the other choics to save money

    Tell a Lib that ad hominem attacks are worthless, and he'll make more of them, thinking only he has the towering intellect to contribute to the search for truth in this way.

    To a Lib, "stupid" is irresistibly brilliant, e.g., recall Walker and re-elect Obama.

    Actually, low polls for the anti-walker side might keep them energized and get them to the polls. Whereas high polls might cause some to be lax and not go vote.

    Republicans, conservatives and the tea party are as motivated for June 5th as ever. Nothing will keep us away from voting after having month after month of listening to the lies, the bitching, the bullying, the liberal media anti-walker stories. Our state is as divided as can be but it is finally time for us to be heard with our votes. The silent majority will again prevail.

    What is I think a bit remarkable is the relatively poor turnout for the primaries and Barrett. Given the strong support for Walker, there was still almost more votes for Walker than all the other Democratic contenders combined.

    If anything, with the DNC having pulled out of funding the race, and the Labor choice for Democratic nominee having been defeated (with a lot of bad blood - they initially even cancelled the "unity party" after the primary), turnout for Barrett may be less than anticipated - and in a way rightfully so, the whole purpose for the recall in the first place has now been ignored by the leading nominee. Voters should rightfully be asking why they were put through this process in the first place.

    oh no, dont worry, the dems are still advertising lies on TV and going with the national theme....lying about jobs, Walkers war on women, his cutting money for education, medicare, and wanting to make Wisconsin a right-to-work state.....blah blah. The taxpayers are not stupid, they have seen it and had enough.
