Poll: Walker Expands Lead to 6 Points

Poll: Walker Expands Lead to 6 Points

Today, the respected Marquette University Law School released its latest survey on the Wisconsin recall. In just a few shorts weeks, Gov. Scott Walker has expanded his lead from a virtual tie to a solid six point lead.

A new Marquette Law School Poll shows that with three weeks to go until the recall election Governor Scott Walker has taken a six-percentage point lead over Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, 50-44 percent, among likely voters. Just three percent say they are undecided. In the previous poll, taken April 26-29, Walker held a one-percentage point lead among likely voters, 48-47.

Also today, Daily Kos/PPP poll showed Walker leading Barrett by 5 points as well. The PPP poll traditionally skews towards democrats, so these present clear signs that Walker is starting to pull away from his opponent.

There are still three weeks to go. And, unions will tap into millions of dollars from their members’ paychecks. But, with DNC pulling out of the recall fight and the RNC pouring resources in, it looks like June will provide the first of many victories for conservatives in 2012.
