Poll weighted towards Democrats still shows Walker at 50 percent approval
The We Are Wisconsin poll shows Governor Scott Walker leading over Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett 50% to 47%, within the margin of error but still leading. More interesting is the favorable/unfavorable rating, with the incumbent Walker at 50%. Hard to recall an incumbent when he’s at 50% favorability.
I know the pollster is trying to sell the idea that the election is within striking distance for Barrett but despite the 18 months of non-stop negative campaigning, Walker still has a 50% approval rating in a poll that the pollster weighted with more Democrats than other recent polls.
Hard to imagine that this will sway too many national Democrats that they’re wrong about the recall election being a mistake.
