Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett would be governor if the election were held today, in what looks like a massive case of voter "buyers" remorse.
(Reuters) - Wisconsin voters would narrowly favor Governor Scott Walker's Democratic opponent if the November, 2010 election were repeated, according to partial poll results released (by) Public Policy Polling of Raleigh, North Carolina on Monday.
Walker won the November 2, 2010 election 52 to 46 percent for Democrat Tom Barrett, with the remainder of the vote to minor candidates … if the election were replayed now, the result would be almost exactly flipped, with Democrat Tom Barrett getting 52 percent and Walker 45 percent, with four percent not sure.
The shift in voter sentiment away from Walker was attributed to households with at least one union member, the polling group said. Those surveyed were also asked how they voted in the November election and 47 percent said for Walker and 47 percent for Barrett.
