Poll: Hansen 62, VanderLeest 34

A new survey for the liberal website Daily Kos has Dem Sen. Dave Hansen with a commanding lead over GOP challenger David VanderLeest just ahead of tomorrow's recall election.

The poll found 62 percent of those surveyed backed Hansen, D-Green Bay, compared to 34 percent who supported VanderLeest. The rest were undecided.

Of those polled, 59 percent approved of Hansen's job performance, compared to 38 percent who disapproved. Meanwhile, 63 percent of those polled had a negative impression of VanderLeest, whose police record has been fodder for opponents. Twenty-three percent of those surveyed had a positive impression of him.

The survey of 1,301 likely voters by the Dem firm Public Policy Polling was conducted Friday through Sunday and had a margin of error of plus or minus 2.7 percentage points.

Tomorrow's race in the 30th SD is the first of the general elections in the nine recalls that have been certified against incumbent state senators. The other general elections will be Aug. 9 and Aug. 16.
