Wisconsin Voters Have Buyers’ Remorse

A Public Policy Polling survey shows that if Wisconsin voters had it to do over, they’d elect Democratic nominee, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett over Scott Walker. (h/t Political Wire)

…if voters in the state could do it over today they’d support defeated Democratic nominee Tom Barrett over Scott Walker by a a 52-45 margin.

The difference between how folks would vote now and how they voted in November can almost all be attributed to shifts within union households. Voters who are not part of union households have barely shifted at all- they report having voted for Walker by 7 points last fall and they still say they would vote for Walker by a 4 point margin. But in households where there is a union member voters now say they’d go for Barrett by a 31 point margin, up quite a bit from the 14 point advantage they report having given him in November.

It’s Republican union supporters shifting away from Walker that make the difference. And the poll showed that it was Democrats staying home in November that helped elect Walker.
