Walker Holds Small Lead in Wisconsin Recall

A new Public Policy Polling survey in Wisconsin shows Gov. Scott Walker (R) slightly ahead of Tom Barrett (D) in the recall election, 50% to 47%.

Key finding: "Barrett is actually winning independent voters by a 48-46 margin. The reason he continues to trail overall is that Republicans are more excited about voting in Tuesday's election than Democrats are. Our projected electorate voted for Barack Obama by only 7 points, even though he took the state by 14 in 2008. If the folks who turn out on Tuesday actually matched the 2008 electorate, Barrett would be ahead of Walker by a 50-49 margin. It's cliche but this is a race that really is going to completely come down to turnout."

A new Angus Reid poll finds Walker leading by six points, 53% to 47%.

A new We Ask America poll finds Walker ahead by double-digits, 54% to 42%.
