Democratic Governor's Association Push New Wisconsin Poll That

...still shows Walker leading, 49-46, over Tom Barrett.

This is the tenth straight poll showing Walker ahead.

They claim this is "narrower" than a poll they had a week before showing Walker by a wider lead. Conveniently they never released that one. I'll give you each one guess why.

Three observations:

1- Those desperately trying to change the inevitability feeling of Walker winning are now coming out of the woodwork with polls...but point #2

2- These polls still show Walker ahead.

3- The DGA's polls give Walker a wider lead than Barrett's own internals. Oopsie.

4- (I lied about three) They are pushing what now counts as the tenth poll straight showing Walker leading, and only in response to public polls with fully divulged crosstabs giving the Governor a more substantial lead.

5- I miss sunlight.

Live debate between Tom Barrett and Governor Scott Walker can be streamed from here.

7 Its awfully red around here.

And yea, barring some last week surprise, the trend is firmly established that the race is Walker's to lose. The real question: if Walker wins the recall, does it set him up for re-election in 2014? The plus side, his organization would have run 2 significiant campaigns in 4 years, his donor list has to be huge by now and he will have some air of invincibility. The downside....does so many elections in such a short time give voters Walker fatigue.

10 1 out of 32 polls has Barrett ahead, so that's what we're going with.

Posted by: Harvard Poll-Swallowers at May 25, 2012 08:18 PM (FcR7P)

11 What is Barrett's highest polling number......it seem he never gets above 46. Seems he has been stuck at that number for a long time. Seems to be that he has his vote but he is getting nothing else. And, if I recall, this is one election where the undecided is always around 1 percent. Seems Barrett is stuck.

Milwaukee and Madison have kept their City Halls open over Memorial Day weekend for voters to cast their ballots . I believe they are the only 2 municipalities to do so. Of course, that's where all the libs are located.

Also I have seen news reports of massive ballot requests in Waukesha, Washington, Sheboygan, and the Green Bay area. None of those are Barrett turf.

24 Worry is good.
It inspires more Rs to be active- poll watching, driving elderly voters to the polls, voting in droves.

The Democrats will attempt between 04Prez and 10Gov turnout in the two biggest counties for them, but if they are getting crushed everywhere else in the state it isn't enough. Both Walker AND Prosser carried more counties than Bush in 04. Made a difference for Prosser and was icing on the cake for Walker's first run.

Milwaukee Democrat Mayor Tom Barrett held a rally to recall Governor
Scott Walker on May 19 at Washington Park in Milwaukee. Immediatly
after Tom Barrett blasted Republicans for the so-called “War on Women”
he turned the stage over to gangsta rapper Prophetic (aka “Proph”).

53 wtf is barrett talking about? the job numbers are from WI itself, does Barrett even know how the labor dept get its numbers? It sends, not via email, but snail mail, to about 5000 employers in the country, that's it, in the footnotes of the report it says they may be 100 + or -, that is how the labor dept gets employed numbers, its an estimation, that's it.
So asking WI employers directly is a much more accurate way to gauge job numbers.
