A new poll from Wisconsin this week has right-wing Koch Brothers puppet
Gov. Scott Walker leading Democrat Tom Barrett by just one point.
This is the second poll in a row to show a one-point race -- a statistical tie -- and the latest in a long line of polls to show there are virtually no undecided voters left in this race.
It's a 48-47 race in Wisconsin and whoever best turns out their base on Election Day wins. It's that simple.
That's why we've put together a massive ground campaign to turn out Democratic voters. We're knocking on doors right now and, come June 5, we'll have knocked on 127,353 doors across the state.
Turning out the base is the most important thing we can do to win in Wisconsin. Election watchers and the media agree --
Opinion about the governor is fixed because most people have chosen sides and dug in. The undecided and ambivalent are few and far between... Compared to the average incumbent, his public standing is almost impervious to news events, political developments and multi-million-dollar ad campaigns. The good news for Walker is that he isn't hurt that much by bad news. The bad news is that he isn't helped that much by good news.
-Craig Gilbert, Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
Simply put: Walker is a hugely polarizing figure in Wisconsin and voters have already made up their minds about him. Now, we need to make sure the people who want him out of office get to the polls on June 5.
