There've been lots of polls that show ties or Walker leads within the margin of error, but I can't recall the last time (if ever) I've seen a poll with a Burke lead.

Marquette had Burke up 1 with LVs in their poll at the end of last month.

It isnt a recall election in which Walker ran against a flawed candidate, Barrett.

Burke can keep it close and win on election day.

Marquette is the best pollster when it comes to Wisconsin, but unless they find Burke with a larger lead or other pollsters (PPP, Quinnipac, SUSA) find Burke up, still tilt/lean R.

Every single poll since April has shown either a 1 point Walker lead, a tie, or 1 point Burke lead. This race is the definition of toss up. To call it "lean R" is completely nonsensical.

It's Lean R in my opinion because Walker won in a recall election. It's not crazy to think he'll win a General Election.

It's not crazy to think he'll win. It's crazy to think he has a strong advantage since all evidence points to the contrary. Barrett was a weak candidate, and the exit poll overwhelmingly showed that voters thought recalls should only be used for official misconduct, not because people disliked their policies. That padded Walker's margin as well.

Democrats always do better on election day than they do in the polls. Even Feingold lost by less than polls were saying he would.

It's learn R because the fundamentals favor Walker. Obama is unpopular, it's a midterm, and Democratic turnout will be down. If the race were tied going into election day, he'd be my bet.

But the fundamentals are already baked into the polls. In fact, Marquette's LV screen showed Burke doing better among LVs than RVs. I'd probably narrowly give the win to Walker as well if I had to predict, but his slight advantage is not really worthy of the "lean" label, at least in my opinion.

Definitely a tossup race: either could win. This is Wisconsin and it will all come down to turnout (duh). If I had to call it now, I would say Walker hangs on. He has the money and a loyal committed voting base. Come November, things may be different.

Lean R =/= a strong advantage. It means he's a slight favorite.

Depends on one's definition of the term. I could see this being described as "lean R" if one refuses to ever use the term "toss up".

This should be one of the biggest targets for Democrats this year. Scott Walker has been a major villain for the Democrats and is a presidential contender. Knocking him out would be a big victory even if the rest of the election night goes poorly.

A 50-49 senate isnt as bad as a 49-50 senate.

What about the 100th seat?

The 100th seat will depend largely on if La or Ga go into a runoff situation.

We can afford to lose the 100th seat should we have 50 -votes already, because of King and Biden.
