Barrett Internal Poll Shows Dead Heat in Wisconsin Recall

May 31, 2012

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett's campaign released a poll on Thursday showing the Wisconsin gubernatorial recall to be a dead heat. The release is the latest effort from Barrett and his allies to rebuke public polling showing Walker with a small lead.

The latest Barrett internal survey, which was conducted by the Democratic firm Garin-Hart-Yang, shows Walker leading Barrett 50 percent to 48 percent. It's the fifth survey released by Democrats in the last week with Barrett within the margin of error of the governor.

These polls stand in contrast to a Marquette University Law School poll released Wednesday that had Walker leading Barrett 52 percent to 45 percent.

The Marquette poll was conducted before Memorial Day weekend. The latest Barrett internal survey was conducted after the holiday.

With less than a week before the recall election, Democrats are fighting a growing sense that Walker has a slight advantage heading into the final weekend of the campaign.

The Barrett internal surveyed 821 likely voters on Tuesday and Wednesday. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.5 percent.
