PPP's Final Wisconsin Poll Shows Scott Walker Edging Tom Barrett

Posted: 06/03/2012

WASHINGTON -- Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) holds a narrow lead over his Democratic challenger, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, in the run up to Tuesday's recall election, according to the final poll on the race conducted by Public Policy Polling, a firm affiliated with the Democratic Party.

PPP's automated, recorded-voice survey, conducted among 1,226 likely voters over the weekend, puts Walker at 50 percent support, 3 percentage points ahead of Barrett's 47 percent.

Fifteen surveys on the recall election have been released over the past month, and while most have produced close results, all but one have given Walker the advantage. Independent polls have generally given Walker a bigger lead than the handful of publicly released internal polls sponsored by the Barrett campaign or its Democratic allies.

In the past week, a Marquette University Law School poll gave Walker a seven-point lead, 52 percent to 45 percent, while an internal poll conducted for the Barrett campaign by the Democratic firm Garin-Hart-Yang showed Walker leading by just two points, 50 percent to 48 percent. The latest effort from PPP, which also polls for Democratic clients but did not have a campaign or party sponsor for this survey, is closer to the Barrett campaign poll.

With all polls included, including the internal surveys by the Democrats, the HuffPost Pollster chart of all available Wisconsin surveys gives Walker a lead of 2.8 points (50.3 percent to 47.5 percent). With the Democratic campaign polls excluded, however, Walker's lead grows to 3.9 points (50.6 percent to 46.7 percent).

This election is too important for the Democrats to leave to Wisconsin voters alone. Bus loads of people will be brought in to illegally vote for the Democrat. If every legal voter, who believes in America, and wants her to succeed gets out and votes Wisconsin will be safe. There is a message on one of the boards that claims she, and her husband will crawl over live zombies to vote tommorrow. Now that is a real American.

Like the unions running your state and country?
Your schools? Your president taking their
money and getting their votes....Didn't you like
the way the people had a choice for 200 yrs.?
Amazeing how you have turned your country to
those who will tell you when to crap, thought
you had the sense to know that..YOU don't...

If the people of WI are actually stupid enough to vote out this gov. who has lowered taxes, kept people employeed and created jobs, then they deserve what they get. Higher taxes to pay the unionistas a better wage with better benefits than anyone PAYING THOSE TAXES gets, less jobs, more layoffs (needed to pay for the higher wages and free benefits given to unions with your money paying for their benefits and yours) and a depressed economy. Yeah, if WI people are really that stupid than go for it, but don't expect any federal bailout when the state goes broke.

You got it Jimbo, they are bussing in tons to register on the spot, especially since the students are not around now to do their bidding. Since when have dems. be able to win without cheating? As I said, if WI is stupid enough to let them steal this election they deserve what the will get.

If you could read you would see Reuters article is a deception and outright lie in part. Liberals never win on a level playing field.

We shall see. If thoughtful caring parents and grand parents don't vote tomorrow....Walker will be defeated.

WI will be doomed to ultimate financial collapse under the Devils Partnership between the Unions and their bought and paid for Democrat funding operatives.
