Oh my: Walker 54, Barrett 42 in Wisconsin

posted at 4:41 pm on May 24, 2012 by Allahpundit

This is from We Ask America, the same pollster that recently had Walker by nine, which was already the biggest margin of any recent recall poll. Now they’re topped it. The little Eeyore on my shoulder is whispering “outlier” — and yet, they’re using likely voters and an enormous sample, which means their margin of error is smaller than any of their competitors.

Is this happening?

If Scott Walker actually wins public-employee households, I’ll need to drop Humpbot and come up with a new, even sexier victory mascot to fully capture the jubilation. Over at the NYT decision desk, Nate Silver is about ready to make a call:

Mr. Walker leads his Democratic opponent, Mayor Tom Barrett of Milwaukee, by an average of six percentage points in those polls and has not trailed in any poll since February.

Some polls issued by Democratic-affiliated groups have shown a somewhat tighter race, with Mr. Barrett trailing by about three percentage points instead. Partisan-affiliated polls have a long track record of somewhat exaggerating their candidate’s standing, however, and it may be telling that even these polls do not show Mr. Barrett ahead.

In a typical November election, a 6-point lead with two weeks to go would translate into a high probability of winning — roughly on the order of 90 percent, based on the historical accuracy of polls of governors’ races.

The dynamics of a recall election may be slightly more uncertain. But with high turnout expected, which tends to make polling more reliable, Mr. Barrett would most likely need a last-minute change in momentum to have much of a chance of prevailing.

Like me, he’s not fully sure what accounts for Walker’s staying power. The collective bargaining law appears to be a minor asset at best and possibly even a tiny liability at worst, but the magical combination of incumbency, massive campaign spending, a contentious Democratic primary, and recall fatigue among Wisconsinites has us rocketing towards a waterloo for big labor. And … maybe more?

In other Wisconsin news, Tom Barrett’s own pollster says this one is going down to the wire. I’m skeptical, but beware: Even We Ask America, the most bullish pollster of all, cautions that “A massive, well-organized GOTV program by Barrett’s supporters combined with enough of Walker’s supporters staying home can change everything.” Buy champagne, but only on the way home from voting.

Absolutely awesome news.

There is going to be an EPIC meltdown on the left when Walker wins.

Scott Walker is going to be a great assest if he wins in a mandate. Romney will be shoulder to shoulder with him to win the state back. This is great news. Frankly, I think the unions did conservatives a HUGE favor by pushing this.

One more thing…a Walker victory reminds me of a Scott Brown victory. The conservative message is still resonating in democratic strong holds. Winning!

I don’t like that Waterloo video, I remember it being up numerous times when Obamacare looked like it was going to die in Congress and we know how that turned out.

Alphapundit…what accounts for Walker having a lead in the polls? Being right on the issue and having the backbone to stay the course is why. Even these days Americans like people who are right.

This comment is about the A-Bomb graphic for this post.
I remember the first time I saw that here. It’s when a poll showed Scott Brown ahead of his opponent Martha Coakley. That was super huge for two reasons. One, just a few weeks before Brown was considered an impossible long shot, it was just unimaginable that he could win, but a few of us started following the story around New Years thinking that maybe he would do the impossible. Two, at the time we thought that if Scott Brown won, Obamacare would be dead.

Maybe that H-Bomb graphic is justified here to tout this Scott Walker poll. I don’t know. But just remember that that graphic has a special value to many of us… use it with discretion, when it really really means something huge.

MJZZZ on May 24, 2012 at 4:57 PM

If Walker demoralizes Democrats with a resounding win, what are the chances Romney doesn’t win Wisconsin.

This will be strike 4 for Democrats in the state (Walker won, Court seat held, Senate held, and Walker’s governership survived). I doubt the DNC and their union cronies will want to pour more money into that state unless they absolutely have to.

CurtZHP on May 24, 2012 at 4:57 PM

What’s not to like about Scott Walker if you’re a tax-paying citizen in Wisconsin? He’s done a good job up there, and taken a lot of flak for it. People aren’t stupid. They see that.

Repub’s need to stay focused and GOTV for Walker. As a life-long Packer fan, all I should need to say is 15-1 to remind Wisconsinites that you don’t win the big prize unless you finish the drill.

NeoDawg on May 24, 2012 at 4:59 PM

I like the energy, but it ain’t over. The Democratic playbook includes lies, false “bomb” stories dropped days before an election, union intimidation, absentee ballot fraud, and plain ol’ election stealing (“Hey, wait! I just remembered I have a bag of Barret ballots in the trunk of my car!”). Now is the time to redouble the intensity… and the fundraising. A 10-15 point crushing will be impossible for anyone to ignore. A one-point Walker loss will be impossible for anyone to forget.

Bitter Clinger on May 24, 2012 at 5:01 PM

I’ve been seeing more and more “I stand with Walker” signs on front lawns lately. In contrast I’ve only seen a couple cars with bumper stickers to “save Wisconsin- recall Walker”; and to my knowledge, I’ve only seen 2 signs lately on front lawns to “save Wisconsin- recall Walker”.

I know you’re going to call me an Eeyore. But… “don’t count your chickens until they are hatched.” All the pictures of large vans of people being shipped in to get absentee ballots down in Democrat stomping grounds has me a bit concerned; not counting, of course, all the illegal, condemned prisoners, and of course, the “risen from the dead” votes that always show up voting D! I’d LOVE to see this be a Walker blowout. That is actually the only way we’d have a win. A close win by Walker would be contested till the cows come home and after… until finally the W would be over in the D column. But I’m not going to count on it until then.

In fact, (last Eeyore statement I promise), could there be any possibility of the polls being rigged to create such a high comfort level of Walker winning that people would would have voted will stay home? Most of the people I know wouldn’t allow that to happen; however, I can’t help but wonder if that isn’t somehow a devious ploy. Sorry, but when you live in Wisconsin as many years as I have you tend to look all “gift horses in the mouth” and refrain from holding out hope until you see an uncontested W in the R column.

PackerFan4Life on May 24, 2012 at 5:03 PM

Let’s not pop the corks until we got this nailed down. When the chips are down, the Democrats always reach into their little black book o’dirty tricks, if not out and out voter fraud.

squint on May 24, 2012 at 5:03 PM

Is this happening?

Well, judging by the frantic calls I heard today from public union-lovin’ Wisconsinites into Ed Shultz’s radio show (yes, I do listen occasionally for comedic purposes), a double-digit Walker victory sounds very possible.

Oh yeah.

Common Sense Floridian on May 24, 2012 at 5:03 PM

Been confident about a Walker win for awhile now, but a lead well outside the margin of fraud would be very comforting.

It also provides a preview of November which is even more comforting.

Missy on May 24, 2012 at 5:04 PM

“A massive, well-organized GOTV program by Barrett’s supporters combined with enough of Walker’s supporters staying home can change everything.”

Theoretically that’s true but why on earth would Walker supporters stay home? This is the ultimate chance to REFUDIATE Big Labor and fire the shot heard round the world as we run up to November.

Missy on May 24, 2012 at 5:12 PM

Mitt and the gope have been no where around while Walker has been going through all this….and now they want to ride in and capitalize on Walker’s/Wisconsin’s success.

Mitt and the gope make me sick.

Walker doesn’t need Mitt’s shoulder or anything else….Walker’s already won the state.

I also agree with someone above, a LOT of the absentee ballots will be requested from Walker supporters.

Remember, public union households are under 10% of the state. And from that poll, almost half of them support Walker.

Has anyone seen statistics about what % of dues the unions have lost since membership is now voluntary?

slickwillie2001 on May 24, 2012 at 6:10 PM

Forget about voter ID law. It’s an enormous hole in both the absentee AND the ballot box- because a liberal judge.. no, TWO different liberal judges… threw it out and said voter ID couldn’t be used. It was brought up to the state supreme court, but they refused to hear it and remanded it down to the lower courts- the very courts that said we couldn’t use it.

So…. doesn’t matter much if it’s absentee or not; the “quick and the dead” along with illegals will be voting; and voting more than once to boot. Interestingly enough, all (or almost all) of those votes will go D. It’s very interesting how once you die you change parties and become D.

..hmmmmmmmmmm. Reminiscent of the Scott Walker campaign back in 2010. Wonder if he’s going to do a road trip up there and give a speech to a half-empty high-school gym? Maybe Barret could geau to Lambeau Field and shake Pack fan’s hands?

That was Scott Brown and yeah it was embarrassing for the Won. Brown had more people outside at his event (the same night I think) standing in rain and snow than Obama’s people could drag in off the street.

The campaign had the gym’s dividing screen closed to make it look full. Now THAT is a poll.

Barrett is probably hoping Obama stays away.

It’s a trap to get Walker supporters to stay home…

They all need to go out and vote. “It’s the only way to be sure.”

Whassup!

If Scott Walker actually wins public-employee households, I’ll need to drop Humpbot and come up with a new, even sexier victory mascot to fully capture the jubilation.

Try this:

If the Dems were smart, which I realize they are not, they would have realised that Walker won the last election. Hello…that means that more people voted for him last time than his opponent. It hasn’t been long enough for people to forget that and they can still want to “give him a chance”. Obama isn’t the only politician who people want to give the benefit of the doubt to.
