UNDATED (WSAU) Some polls show that only 2-percent of Wisconsinites are undecided about whether to vote for Scott Walker or his Democratic recall election opponent on June 5. But those undecided voters could have more of a say in tomorrow’s five-way Democratic recall primary.
Last week’s Marquette Law School poll gave Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett a 17-point lead over former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk. Doug La Follette and Kathleen Vinehout remain further back, and Gladys Huber is on the ballot as a fake Democrat who ran to guarantee that the finals would be pushed back to next month.
Undecided voters interviewed by the Associated Press include those who sympathize with the public union workers who lost most of their bargaining privileges – but still believe the Republican Walker earned the right to serve his full four-year term. Others want to find out if a Democrat can do better in creating jobs. A couple of voters said they didn’t like Walker’s confrontational tactics – even though they agreed with what he did. Some said they haven’t seen any new ideas from Democrats for improving the state’s fiscal condition.
