Walker Trails Generic Democrat For Reelection

PPP’s new Wisconsin poll finds that the race for Governor next year is likely to be competitive. Scott Walker is somewhat unpopular, with 43% of voters approving of the job he’s doing to 49% who disapprove. Walker trails a generic Democratic opponent for reelection 48-43. Of course generic Democrats sometimes poll stronger than who the nominee actually ends up being and it remains to be seen who from the crowded Democratic field emerges but the race at the least looks like it should be a toss up.

The Foxconn deal isn’t doing much to enhance Walker’s political standing. 34% of voters say they support the deal to 41% who oppose it. Voters also question Walker’s motivations with the deal- just 38% think he’s doing it because it will be a good long term deal for the state, while 49% think he’s doing it just to try to help with his reelection next year.

There is also a sentiment among voters that in several key areas things in Wisconsin have not improved under Walker’s leadership.
Just 17% think the quality of public schools has gotten better during Walker’s tenure to 48% who think they’ve gotten worse and 27% who believe they’ve stayed about the same. And only 20% think the quality of roads and highways has gotten better during the Walker administration, to 38% who think they’ve gotten worse, and 36% who think they’ve stayed about the same.

The other thing plaguing Walker right now is his ties to Donald Trump, who’s become unpopular in Wisconsin
. Only 40% of voters approve of the job Trump is doing to 52% who disapprove. And 44% of voters in the state think Walker has been too supportive of Trump to 35% who think he’s been supportive about the right amount, and 13% who think he hasn’t been supportive enough.

Democrats lead the generic legislative ballot in the state 44-41. Of course the reality with the state’s gerrymandered district lines is that wouldn’t give them much of a chance at a majority in either chamber of the legislature. 44% of voters in the state think the legislative district lines are not fairly drawn, to only 25% who think they are fair. By a 63-16 spread voters think lines should be decided by an independent nonpartisan commission instead of the Legislature and Governor. The appetite for nonpartisan redistricting carries across the usual political divides- Clinton voters support it 79/6, but Trump voters do too 47/28.

On some other key state issues:.................

2. WI has been shifting red for years...

Mostly propped up by propaganda and dirty tricks. We need to get enough blue-leaning Wisconsonites out to arrest Repub "progress" there.

3. It is the gerrymandering that is one of the main problems. But I agree, we

seem to be leaning right last several years.

4. Gerrymandering

 

Is a significant problem but it didn't impact the presidential election (or at least I fail to see how it did). I'm disappointed that Trump gets even 40% support.

7. I'm appalled that Trump gets 40% support.

That's a greater percentage than Hitler got to become Reichskanzler in 1933. After the time Trump has been in office, it's STILL not obvious to 40% of Wisconsin voters what a catastrophe he is? I find that a very frightening statistic.

8. This will sound elitist

 

And elitism is a problem that we Dems have sometimes, but I am assuming that the majority of hardcore Trump supporters don't have a college degree, and may not have a high school degree. But even that is no excuse for supporting Trump - neither of my parents graduated HS and they cannot stand Trump, and my dad is fairly conservative. My parents simply recognize Trump is an awful human being who is completely unqualified for the office he holds.

11. Doesn't sound elitist at all to me

But to judge a person's character, especially a person so publicly revealing of his own character as Trump, you don't need a PhD in psychology, just a gut feeling that works. If a beagle can sense who likes him and who doesn't without a college degree, so can a person from Wisconsin.

10. Switching from hand counted paper ballots to voting machines, optical scanners, central tabulators

Here is link to list of voting machinery being used in Wisconsin, county by county, town by town

5. This is potentially not as good as it seems

 

PPPs final election 2016 poll had Trump at a very similar level of support

2016 Wisconsin President - Clinton 48%, Trump 41% (PPP 10/31-11/1/16)

https://elections.huffingtonpost.com/pollster/polls/ppp-d-center-for-american-progress-action-fund-26700

What I would like to see from PPP is information talking to this. Did they change some of the fundamentals of how they poll Wisconsin in light of their miss on that state in 2016. I am going to bet they DID make some changes and this current poll is accurate, but unless we get something from them confirming they made changes, we can't say that for sure.

I know an election poll and a job approval poll are not the same, I get that.

6. For comparison - @ppppolls from Sept. 2013 had @ScottWalker leading Mary Burke by 6 points.
