Gov. Scott Walker Leads By 6 Points With a Week to Go Before Recall

My, what a difference a year makes…

Last March tens of thousands of angry Wisconsin Democrats and their union backers took to the streets of Madison to rally against Republican Scott Walker and his efforts to balance the state budget.

Police estimated up to 100,000 people turned out in Madison, WI to protest Gov. Scott Walker’s (R) assault on unions. (Think Progress)

Now with less than 10 days before the June 5 recall election, Wisconsin Democrat leaders the Obama Campaign tried to do it again. Too bad only a couple hundred supporters showed up. It was a pathetic turnout. Scott Walker Watch has the video.

According to the most recent polling average compiled by the political Web site RealClearPolitics, Walker is ahead of his Democratic opponent by 6.4 percentage points.
