We Are Wisconsin poll has Walker 50, Barrett 47

The union-affiliated We Are Wisconsin is pushing back on the perception that Gov. Scott Walker is building a lead in the guv’s race, releasing a memo on a survey that has the race within the margin of error.

memo from Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research describes a poll conducted Friday and Monday that had 50 percent of respondents backing Walker and 47 percent supporting Tom Barrett.

The memo says Barrett led among Dems 93-7 and independents 50-44, while Walker led with Republicans 96-3.

The survey of 472 likely general election voters had a margin of error of plus or minus 4.5 percentage points.

It found Barrett’s favorable-unfavorable split at 47-32, while Walker’s was 50-46. The memo says Walker was upside down with independents 43-52, while Barrett’s split with them was 50-24.
