Earlier this morning, we detailed the awful record of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker when it comes to creating private-sector jobs in his state. But that’s not affecting his standing with Wisconsin voters heading into a June recall election, according to a new poll released today by We Ask America.
Walker has a commanding lead over Democratic challenger Tom Barrett: 52 per cent to 43 per cent.

The Wisconsin election is June 5. The election is a rematch of the 2010 gubernatorial election, in which Walker also garnered 52 per cent of that vote to Barrett’s 47 per cent.
A few interesting underliers in the poll, though, is why We Ask America advises that the race is far from over. Walker only leads by 3 per cent among Independent voters, for instance — 47.6 per cent to 44.6 per cent.
Either way, if this poll is any indication, the recall election will inspire one of the most furious turnouts in recent memory. A eye-popping 95 per cent of people We Ask America surveyed said they planned to vote in June.
