    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.

    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.
