New poll shows Gov. Walker trailing 3 Democratic candidates in potential recall

MILWAUKEE- A new poll shows Governor Scott Walker trailing Democratic candidates in a potential recall.

When this same poll was taken last October, Walker only lost to Russ Feingold, but in the new poll, Walker is behind three potential Democratic challengers.

On the heels of the Governor Walker's decision not to challenge any recall signatures -- it's more good news for Democrats.

Three potential challengers would beat Governor Walker according to the latest Public Policy Polling survey.

"I'll leave it to the pundits to interpret what polling shows. Polling changes from one day to another," Governor Walker responded.

Walker would also lose to Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, which is a change from just October. In that poll Barrett would have lost to Walker by two points.

1. 2 things that are leading 2 this

1) John Doh! Even if Walker is not found to be invloved, it is hard to swallow that he would be that incompetent to let his closest aids get away with it.

2) Counter to the rest of the country, WI is bleeding jobs since his budget has been enacted.

3. it is going to be very close and Walker will have unlimited money

so lots of hard work and as PPP says in their poll it's too close for comfort because as they found with their polling in last years recall elections the closer to the election the more people tilt toward the incumbant. That is why Dems only won 2 of the 6 recalls.
