Report: Poll Says Darling, Pasch Neck and Neck in Senate Recall Race

Democratic party poll says only a one percent difference in voter support.

The Democratic Party has released results of a poll that shows Sen. Alberta Darling (R-River Hills) and Rep. Sandy Pasch (D-Whitefish Bay) are neck and neck with voter support, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

The newspaper says the poll results show Pasch pulling slightly ahead with 47 percent of the votes, leaving Darling with only 46 percent.

A total of 350 likely voters were surveyed on July 13 and 14, by the Mellman Group. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 5 percentage points. In comparison, .

Darling is one of six Republican and three Democratic senators targeted for a recall this summer. At the heart of the efforts is Gov. Scott Walker's that eliminated state and local government workers of most of their collective bargaining rights.

Pasch will challenge Darling in an Aug. 9 recall election for her 8th District Senate seat.

They called me. Since I used to live in Chicago they let me vote three times. I voted for the Alberta candidate once, Pasch once, and abstained once.

Those "questions" seem to correspond pretty well with the Democrat talking points. It's a shame that you don't ask any 'real' questions, about the real issues that are supposed to be the reason for having the recall elections. Perhaps something about collective bargaining, the state budget, the budget repair bill, jobs, education, etc.
