Dem’s Leaning Toward Barrett

1/18/12 – Wisconsin voters apparently want a rematch between Governor 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, compared to 22-percent for Falk, 21-percent for Obey, and 11-percent for Janesville Senate Democrat Tim Cullen. The Public Policy poll interviewed people most likely to vote in a Democratic party. About 60-percent of those people were Democrats — but 11-percent were Republicans, and 30-percent were independents.
