Governor Walker leads Dems in early poll


Governor Scott Walker holds single-digit leads over four potential Democratic recall opponents, in hypothetical matchups put together for the new Marquette University Law School poll.

The poll finds Walker ahead of Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, by a 50 percent to 44 percent margin. The Governor also leads former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk, 49 percent to 42 percent, Congressman David Obey, 49 percent to 43 percent, and State Senator Tim Cullen, 50 percent to 40 percent. However, Walker's lead falls within the poll's margin of error in every race except the one against Cullen.

Of the possible Democratic candidates, Barrett had the best favorable-to-unfavorable split among self-identified Democrats and independents who lean Democrat.

The poll was a survey of 701 registered Wisconsin voters, and the first in a series of polls Marquette Law School plans to conduct throughout the 2012 election year.

This poll found President Barack Obama holds an eight-point lead over potential Republican nominee Mitt Romney in Wisconsin.
