Democratic Opponent - 48%
Scott Walker - 43%

Quote
Public Policy Polling surveyed 1,116 registered voters on October 17th and 18th. The margin of error is +/- 2.9%. 80% of participants, selected through a list based sample, responded via the phone, while 20% of respondents who did not have landlines conducted the survey over the internet through an opt-in internet panel.

At this point in 2013 Walker was up 6 on Burke in a PPP poll.

He's probably the weakest GOP incumbent this cycle (after Rauner of course).

Well, 3 terms is kind of a stretch. That is a long time to preside over the affairs of a state, and a lot of time to suck up blame or get negative attention. I don't recall Walker ever being a well-liked Governor, either. He's more like a bland partisan hack.

To be fair it's actually Democratic Opponent, who is a much stronger candidate than Generic Democrat.

Yeah, I don't think Walker is more vulnerable than Hogan or Sununu. He could certainly lose, but I'd rate it Tilt/Lean R for now. My guess is he wins by 3 in the end, though it will be the toughest race of his career and him losing wouldn't be that surprising (especially given that Baldwin seems to be cruising to reelection).

Too bad that there are no Senate numbers.

Regardless of the outcome, Walker has lots of accomplishments as a governor. I am grateful for his crusade against corrupt public unions

Oh yeah, backroom deals, destroying the budget, gutting the public education system (on which Wisconsin's economy relies heavily), ignoring infrastructure improvements.

Yeah, all the accomplishments.

Seriously. Walker's administration is no paragon of ethics or honesty. Let's not forget the John Doe files, or restructuring the ethics board to grind it to a halt, or the numerous changes to election law to gain an advantage (including brutal gerrymanders now the focus on a pivotal SCOTUS suit), or how they deregulated laws against lead paint after getting hearty donations from that industry.

Walker and his pals in the legislature aren't as much pro-business as they are pro-corruption, with special laws and favors beyond the traditional conservative deregulation scheme up to the highest bidder.

If people want to rag on unions, fine, but at least take stock of the bad actors on your own side.

Yeah, generic D and all that, but clearly Walker isn't as unbeatable as people thought. He's a very polarizing figure, so it's all going to come down to turnout.

Generic Democrat, the greatest candidate of all time.

Reminder, Northam was considered a generic democrat and he is on the verge of losing. It's quite clear, there is no generic democrat once the GOP reminds people of how the democrats have turned into the party that shuts down college campuses speeches, condones antifa violence, wants to remove decades-old statues because they are "racist" and has people on it calling for the suppression of all whites or all men.

In a state full of WWC, the most unfriendly people to democrats, they are basically doomed. I envision a midwestern and southern shutout for the democrats in 2020 and not a much better scenario in the midterms.

Reminder, Northam was considered a generic democrat and he won by 9 points against a candidate pulling right from the Trump playbook.

ftfy Wink

a midwestern and southern shut-out? Probably, but it won't happen to us.

It remains to be seen who will really be able to take Walker on, though. I haven't been overly impressed with the field thus far, and "Generic Democrat" won't hold up through next November, obviously.

I think Walker is still very slightly favored but it's a Tossup.

I will say that Walker is no Tommy Thompson. I think it's possible his luck could run out in 2018.

It's possible stumping for Trump in the last month of the Election 2016 cycle could harm him in 2018.
