Some National Recognition for Walker

Great National Article on Walker

Governor Jim Doyle would do well to remember the Green Lake Reporter when planning his reelections’ next media blitz. Buried inside this week’s issue is a key journalistic clue, an opinion column entitled “Wisconsin’s citizens deserve better” written by Scott Walker, candidate for governor. Walker, Milwaukee County’s Executive, is one of four Republicans vying to unseat Doyle in 2010. A survey research firm, Public Policy Polling (PPP), found that Doyle has just over a 34 percent approval rating and trails two 2010 opponents in hypothetical contests: Scott Walker (48-40) and former Congressman Mark Neumann (42-41). Compared with President Obama’s overall 63 percent approval rating in Wisconsin this June, U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold’s 56 percent approval and the relatively low polling strength of Republican challengers, PPP concludes the results of the gubernatorial contest sampling “has a lot more to do with Doyle than it does with either of them.”
