Majorities In Two Wisconsin GOP Senate Districts Support Senator Recalls

Posted by | March 10, 2011 12:27 | Filed under: Top Stories

Greg Sargent reports that a look at new polling by Survey USA indicates that a majority of voters in Republican Wisconsin districts support recalling their senators, Dan Kapanke (pictured) and Randy Hopper.

When asked if they would vote for Hopper or someone else if a recall election were held right now, 54 percent said they’d vote for someone else, versus only 43 percent they’d vote for Hopper.

In Kapanke’s district, the numbers were even worse: 57 percent said they’d vote for someone else, versus only 41 percent who said they’d vote for Kapanke.

It gets even more interesting. The poll was taken yesterday, before last night’s events, and fifty-six percent of voters in Kapanke’s district, and 54% of voters in Hopper’s district, said if their Senator voted for Walker’s plan, it would make them more likely to vote for someone else. Last night, both Senators did vote for Walker’s rollback of bargaining rights.
