[img_assist|nid=370992|title=|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=300|height=199]This past cycle, PPP polling was one of the most accurate pollsters nationwide and in Wisconsin.  So, today's poll results can't be interpreted as anything other than horrible news for Scott Walker and Wisconsin Republicans.  The poll highlights:

  • Former Senator Russ Feingold, beats Walker 49-47 in a potential race for governor.  In such a match-up, Feingold leads independents by a 52-42 margin.
  • In match-up with other lesser-known Democrats, Walker is narrowly ahead, however, fails to poll over 50% against of them-- a harbinger of bad things to come for any incumbent. 
  • Walker was able to gain the least amount of support (46%) in a potential match-up with Rep. Ron Kind, where the poll showed the La Crosse Democrat only trailed Walker by a 46-42% margin, with eleven percent undecided.
  • In a rematch with Senator Ron Johnson, the poll shows that Feingold would win 52-42.
  • Walker is slightly upside down in his approval rating with 49% saying they disapprove of the job he is doing and 48% saying they approve.  Among independents his approve/disapprove is 45/51, among men it is 54/44, and among women it is 42/55.
