WI-GOV: Doyle Trails?
It looks like the pollsters will have to agree to disagree. Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle is in good shape for reelection says Research 2000. Not so, ...
Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker has a 48-40 lead over Doyle and former Congressman Mark Neumann has a 42-41 edge.
Doyle remains relatively popular within his own party, but meets with approval from just 6% of Republicans and also finds disapproval from 69% of independents. The difficulty with independents is unique to Doyle- a PPP release tomorrow looking at federal level politicians in Wisconsin finds Barack Obama, Russ Feingold, and Herb Kohl all finding approval from voters who don't identify with either major party.
