MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin voters apparently want a rematch between Governor Scott Walker and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett. The firm of Public Policy Polling says Barrett leads former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk 46-to-27 percent if they're the only two candidates in a Democratic primary. If Barrett runs only against former Congressman Dave Obey, Barrett would lead 43-to-28 percent. And if there are four candidates in a Democratic primary, Barrett would have 26-percent to 22 for Falk, 21 for Obey, and 11-percent for Janesville Senate Democrat Tim Cullen.

Petitions are being filed Tuesday in the Walker recall effort. The Republican governor has said he expects an election to be held in June.

Voters chose Walker over Barrett in the last regular election for governor in November of 2010. The Public Policy poll interviewed people most likely to vote in a Democratic party. About 60% of those people were Democrats -- but 11% were Republicans, and 30% were independents.
