IT WAS ALWAYS A TIGHT RACE:
Scott Walker 2016? Why his 2014 race is getting tighter. (Linda Feldmann, AUGUST 14, 2014, CS Monitor)
Posted by Orrin Judd at August 14, 2014 7:53 PMThe latest poll, released Aug. 3 by Gravis Marketing for the conservative website Human Events, shows Walker and Burke tied at 47 percent each among likely Wisconsin voters. In March, Gravis had Walker up by 5 percentage points. A poll released July 23 by Marquette University Law School in Milwaukee shows Walker at 46 percent and Burke at 45 percent among registered voters.A source in the Walker camp speaking privately says Wisconsin Democrats are more engaged and energized by the race than Republicans - a reverse from the national trend, and a worrisome sign for the GOP in a blue-leaning state.
