According to Public Policy Polling, 43% approved of Walker's performance in May, 47% approve now.Now today, also according to PPP, comes news the SCOAMF has plummeted to 44%.
Obama continues to be unpopular in Wisconsin with only 44% of voters approving of him to 51% who disapprove. It's yet another competitive state at the Presidential level where his standing with independents is abysmal- he's at 36/57 with them. In mid-May, shortly after the killing of Osama bin Laden, Obama stood at 52/44 in the state. But he's dropped 15 points on the margin over the subsequent five months.With Obama below 50% pretty much everywhere, look for the Democrats and their media enablers to furiously push for a third-party candidate. It may be his only hope.
Mitt Romney has pulled to within 3 points of Obama at 46-43. That's the closest Romney's polled to Obama in PPP's polling of the state all year. In the first half of 2011 Obama had a double digit advantage over Romney, leading by 12 on a May poll and 10 on a March poll. There are 2 things causing Obama's increased difficulty- one is that he's gone from leading by 11 points with independents to trailing by 4 with them. And where he was once getting 9% from Republicans, that's now faded all the way down to 2%.
