New Marquette poll shows Walker up 7

New Marquette poll shows Walker up 7

Don’t get cocky, as he says, but a new Marquette poll shows Scott Walker up 7 over Tom Barrett:

A new Marquette Law School poll finds Governor Scott Walker with 52 percent to Mayor Tom Barrett with 45 percent among 600 likely voters in next week’s recall election. That lead falls slightly short of statistical significance. The poll was taken May 23-26, with most interviews completed before last Friday’s first gubernatorial debate, and has a margin of error of +/- 4.1 percentage points. Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch had 46 percent and Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin president Mahlon Mitchell had 41 percent, with 11 percent not expressing a preference. The margin in the Lt. Governor’s race is not statistically significant.

The seven-point advantage for Walker was statistically unchanged from the six-point margin two weeks ago in the Marquette Law School poll taken May 9-12, when Walker had 50 percent to Barrett’s 44 percent.

Among all registered voters the margin is six points, with Walker at 50 percent and Barrett at 44 percent. The registered voter sample has a margin of error of +/- 3.7 percentage points.

Remember what’s at stake. Drive it home on Tuesday.

Do The Right Thing! Elect Scott Walker!

I’m hearing a lot of mumbling and ill-suppressed cussing…a few excuses, too…from the Deemocrats.

All GOOD sounds…!

A few things Althouse pointed out:

Chicago Distances Obama from Wisconsin

Anyway, Chicago wants you to know that the Walker recall business has got nothing to do with Obama.

“This is a gubernatorial race with a guy who was recalled and a challenger trying to get him out of office,” Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter said on MSNBC Wednesday. “It has nothing to do with President Obama at the top of the ticket.”

Walker Leads Barrett 52 tp 45

The same Marquette poll that showed GOP incumbent Walker leading in his recall fight also showed Democratic President Barack Obama leading in his re-election fight against Republican Mitt Romney, 51% to 43%. The two were tied in Marquette’s early May poll.

That’s a big advance for Obama. Not surprising Obama wants nothing to do with the Wisconsin recall election.

Are those bus tire tracks I see running across Barrett’s forehead?

Expect massive vote fraud. That is the Chicago way. Remember, WI is the test case for the Obama campaign, hence the vote fraud. Democrats don’t care how they win, as long as they win. So, I’m not so sure that Walker will be victorious because the Chicao way will be in play.

Has there ever been a case that illustrated better the retort ‘And just how will this affect the price of cheese?’

    I’ve never heard that expression, despite having grown up more or less where I think you did. The expression I always heard was “what’s that got to do with the price of fish?”, sometimes embellished with “…in China”.

7 points isn’t enough. He will need to lead by at least 10 to overcome the cheating the Democrats will do.

Powerlineblog has its own take on this, today, as well “Labor’s Armageddon.
What I’m afraid we will see is an orgy of ballot box stuffing on a magnitude never seen before. The Unions and the Left apparently perceive Wisconsin and the recall election as a land without any laws.
Eric Holders DOJ, the most evil, vile, corrupt, to ever hold sway over this land will resemble a horse’s @ss when asked to intervene on behalf of the rule of law.
