The latest We Ask America poll has Governor Scott Walker up nine points against Democrat candidate Tom Barrett.
We Ask America interviewed 1,219 likely Wisconsin voters who they plan to elect on June 5 for the poll.
While other polls also show Walker in the lead, no one is suggesting that this race is anywhere near over. Walker only leads among self-described Independent voters by 47.6% -44.6% , and the underlying numbers seem fluid. Still, some of Walker’s detractors have been vocal about the fact that Walker was duly elected in 2010 and in most states would not be able to be challenged with a recall without greater cause. And a whopping 95% of those called said they plan to vote in the June 5th election which will have the national spotlight on it.
The recall election is in three weeks.
