Poll: Scott Walker Lead Explodes to 12%

It may soon be Armageddon for union thugs in Wisconsin, as a poll released today shows that Incumbent Republican Scott Walker now leads his opponent Tom Barrett by a whopping 12%. It was only a few months ago that Walker and Barrett were tied in polls; now, as the recall election is just a week and a half away, Walker's lead continues to grow.

Over 1,400 likely voters were asked this week who they would vote for in the coming election. A majority of respondents favored Walker, with 54%. A scant 42% favored Barrett.

Mr. Walker is favored by women with a 51-44% margin and men by a 57-39% margin. Additionally, in non-public union households, Mr. Walker holds a commanding 55-40% lead. The only category in the poll that favors Mr. Barrett is public union households, where he holds a 50-47% lead.

Unlike many polls that have Barrett closer to Walker, We Ask America's poll was specific with their questions. The questions were:
Do you plan to vote in the June 5th election? (Negative responses were dropped)
If the election were held today, for whom would you vote? (Barrett/Walker options rotated)
Are you or any member of your household a member of a public employee union household?
Now, with Walker in a commanding lead, the only thing that can conceivably derail his re-election is voter turn out, voter intimidation, or fraud. We shall see.

  1. Hold on now. I zoomed in real close on that poll graphic, and I saw some pixels! What are they trying to pull!

  2. Voter intimidation and fraud? Well, Wisconsin is close to Chicago.
