WI recall: None of the D candidates poll better than Walker
Opponents of Walker have submitted petitions with more than 1 million signatures to force a recall vote, far more than needed. But Democrats have yet to settle on an opponent to face Walker in a recall.
The Marquette University Law School poll shows Walker leading Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, whom he beat in 2010, by 50 to 44 percent. Dane County executive Kathleen Falk, who has announced she will run for the nomination to challenge Walker, trails Walker by 49 to 42 percent.
The poll also shows Walker leading former congressman David Obey by 7 percentage points and state Senator Tim Cullen by 10 points. Cullen said last month he would run.
The survey of 701 registered Wisconsin voters was taken by telephone from January 19 to 22 and has a margin of error of 3.8 percent. It is the first of a series of polls on the race that Marquette University said it would be conducting.
Some other polls have shown either that Walker is more narrowly leading, or is trailing his potential competitors.
If two or more Democrats decide to run for the right to challenge Walker in a recall election, a primary will be held.
Here's my question:
Who owns the data gathered by the largest recall effort ever? If it's the Ds, that's what's really at stake: The list, and the revenues. That would make the actual recall a sideshow. So who owns the list?
