Dem Poll Shows Tight Walker-Barrett Race

A new Democratic poll released on Tuesday shows a statistical dead heat between Democrat Tom Barrett and Republican Gov. Scott Walker ahead of the June 5 recall election.

The survey, which was conducted Saturday through Monday for We Are Wisconsin, a pro-Barrett labor coalition, shows Walker leading the Democrat 50 percent to 47 percent, which is within the survey's margin of error.

The poll was first reported by the Washington Post.

The last live-caller poll released on the race came from Marquette Law School, and showed Walker leading Barrett 50 percent to 44 percent. That survey was conducted from May 9-12.

Democrats point to an uptick this week in ads by Barrett and his allies as a reason for optimism about the closing stage of the race.

The We Are Wisconsin poll of 472 likely recall voters was conducted by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research from May 19-21 and carries a margin of error of +/-4.5 percentage points.
