MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A new poll gives Governor Scott Walker a three-point lead over Democrat Tom Barrett going into Tuesday’s recall election.

That’s slightly less than the 5-7 percent advantage the Republican Walker has had in other independent surveys.

The Public Policy Polling firm conducted an automated poll of 1,226 likely voters during the weekend. It gave Walker a 50-47 percent lead over Barrett – after the same poll in mid-May gave Walker a 50-45 advantage.

This poll was not done for any client.

Barrett had a slight lead among independents, 48-46, while each party’s voters were solidly behind their candidates.

Walker was given a 51 percent approval rating. He led among men, senior citizens, and whites. Barrett had the advantage among young voters and women.

Barrett’s campaign says it’s own polling shows the two candidates neck-and-neck.
