A Majority of Wisconsinites Want WALKER RECALLED

WisPolitics is reporting: More than half of the respondents in a poll for the state Dem Party support recalling Gov. Scott Walker, according to survey results shared with

While 42 percent would vote to keep Walker as guv in a recall election, 51 percent support his removal. The poll also found Walker struggling with independents, who favored a recall by 16 points, 52-36.

A polling memo compiled by Paul Maslin and Jonathan Brown of Fairbank, Maslin, Maullin, Metz & Associates, which conducted the poll in mid-September, argued the results show Walker is vulnerable to a recall attempt. An effort to remove Walker would also likely get a boost from a presidential-year electorate, they argued. Likely 2012 voters surveyed who didn't vote in 2010 support recalling him by 31 points, 57 percent to 26 percent.

Overall, 46 percent of respondents approved of Walker’s job performance, while 52 percent disapproved.

The memo also noted 53 percent of respondents had a negative opinion of Walker personally, while 53 percent said the state was on the wrong track.

The live telephone surveys of 707 likely November 2012 votes was conducted Sept. 12-15. The margin of error was plus or minus 3.6 percentage points.

The memo obtained did not include the full survey results and questions.

This leaves one pressing question: Who will be the democratic challenger to Scott Walker should a recall occur?
