Thank You Big Labor for making Walker a National Hero & showing you have no strength A new poll by Reason Magazine and Rupe shows Walker now up eight points in the state: Gov. Scott Walker leads Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett 50-42 among those likely to vote in Wisconsins June 5 recall election, according to a new Reason-Rupe poll of 708 Wisconsin adults on cell phones and landlines. In the presidential race, 49 percent of all adults surveyed approve of the job President Obama is doing and 45 percent disapprove. President Obama leads Mitt Romney 46-36 in Wisconsin, with 6 percent selecting the Libertarian Partys Gary Johnson. Obamas margin over Romney shrinks to 45-41 among those likely to vote in Junes recall election, with Johnson taking what would be a crucial 5 percent of the vote. The Reason-Rupe poll finds voters overwhelmingly support many of the key changes Gov. Walker and the legislature implemented on public sector pensions and health care last year. Reason-Rupe finds 72 percent favor the change requiring public sector workers to increase their pension contributions from less than 1 percent to 6 percent of their salaries. And 71 percent favor making government employees pay 12 percent of their own health care premiums instead of the previous 6 percent.
