DGA poll: Walker 49, Barrett 46

The Democratic Governors Association released new poll numbers today that show Scott Walker edging Tom Barrett, but within the margin of error.

The survey found 49 percent backed Walker, compared to 46 percent for Barrett.

A memo from the Mellman Group describing the survey said the gap has tightened since a poll it did last week that found Walker up 51-44.

The memo says Barrett has cut in half Walker’s lead with independents, though it does not give head-to-head numbers. It also says Barrett is backed by 88 percent of Dems compared to 92 percent of Republicans who supported Walker, and says the number of respondents who say Walker shares their values has worsened by 7 points.

By 52-43, voters in the survey said Walker had divided Wisconsin too much and by a 6-point margin, respondents said Walker had allowed corruption in his county exec office. The memo does not include the full numbers on that second question.

The telephone survey of 600 likely voters was conducted Tuesday through Thursday and had a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
