Whoops, messed up the poll options there last time Tongue

Walker, but slightly closer than the polls say, so 3.

Walker by 8-10. Lol at anyone voting Barrett, way to be a complete party hack. There is no chance, accept it.

I think Barrett will win by the skin of his nose, probably within a percentage point.

Not necessarily, Barrett has been closing the gap according to some recent surveys, and Wisconsin has given pollsters a bit of trouble in the past.  So while Walker may have the advantage as of now, a Barrett victory is not out of the question.

Barrett released a few internals showing him within 5 points so that turnout doesn't collapse completely but all the unaffiliated polls have Walker ahead by even more. There is simply no way for Barrett to come out on top. When was the last time Barrett even led in a poll? February?

The bloody Democratic primary ended Barret's chances. Walker's base is energized and united.

In their LV poll; their RV poll was Barnett +1.

Yeah but there is no reason to consider a RV poll when presented with an LV poll. The point is that Barrett doesn't have a chance and never did. This was a stupid idea and a terrible strategic move for Democrats. Walker will get a newer and stronger mandate allowing him to go on a right wing rampage and better challengers than Barrett will be scared to run against him in 2014.

Walker by high single-digits -any higher, and Romney will begin to look at him as a serious VP contender.

Walker, and the entire effort has been something of an embarrassing waste. I understand the impulse that led to it, but Democrats and Unions have made the classic mistake we always make; expecting voters to persistently (and consistently) hold onto grievances and actually take political action and vote based on an issue they purport to be upset by.

We expect too much of the voters sometimes, and this is going to be our result. All involved really should've known better, and waited until 2014, where they could've simply stoked the fire and used it as a talking point until then, keeping the outrage just at a simmering with those who cared the most, rather than try to keep the entire state caring enough to actually recall him over it. The recurring amnesia amongst the "swing" and "moderate" voters was never going to let this happen from the word go.

Walker is favored, though I wouldn't count out Barrett just yet. We haven't seen a poll in almost a week, and Walker has failed to increase his margin despite the air barrage. If the Democrats can mount a successful GOTV campaign, they can counter Walker's air superiority and win.

I'd give Walker a 2/3 shot of winning.

Didn't Walker overpoll in 2010 already ? Polling 9% ahead of Barrett and getting only a 6% win ?

Walker by 3-5+% but I wouldn't be surprised if Barrett won given that Democrats seem to do better in close WI elections then the Republicans.
